P891 Manifold Puzzle





THE MANIFOLD PUZZLE.


 

What appears to be silk ribbons have perished and vanished in the last 100-150 years or so.

To restore the puzzle, we need to find patent No.2118.

We have searched 1890 onwards but have not been able to find the patent.

A.D. was extremely clever and after much research discovered the actual patent - More will be revealed in a future "Puzzle of the Month"

AA

An old print - Possibly a Victorian book illustration.

SOLVED - Dic S. discovered this in Punch magazine and we also found it in Strand Magazine.

The caption was absent!

   

Again Dic S. solved this. It is an early gaming chip from Monte Carlo. 32mm diameter with silver filigree.

Sadly, we are unlikely to discover the romantic history of this particular chip.
