This puzzle was beautiful and I wish I could give it 5 stars, but right after I opened it and was sorting the pieces, I noticed that several of the brand new pieces were damaged. The bottom couple layers of cardboard had peeled off many of the pieces, leaving only a thin and fragile piece with the picture on it. Very disappointing to see the lack of quality here, as it was a beautiful puzzle otherwise.
The blooms were easy to piece together and very satisfying. It's the black map that'll get you!! I did enjoy this but a lot of the black pieces, especially towards the bottom (the smaller cut pieces), fit together where they were not supposed to. I thought I'd completed an area when there were actually extra or missing pieces. This was particularly frustrating while piecing the edges together. Over all a beautiful puzzle once completed but not so much fun when the time comes where I have to pick pieces out of spots they fit but don't belong.
This puzzle was very difficult, also very interesting, and I loved doing it. It is beautiful and very good quality, I am holding on to it so I can put it together again at some future date.
I think the images on your puzzles are wonderful. I do find the quality of the pieces is lacking. Many are delaminated right out of the bag. Please look into your quality control. I give the art work 5 stars and the quality a 2
The Gallison puzzles are beautiful & great quality that can’t be beat for the price, I’ve already recommended the brand to a couple of friends and have placed a second order for myself.
