the object of the puzzle being to so assemble the severed parts as to remake the form from which the same are cut.
. The puzzle made in accordance with my invention preferably comprises a rectangu- .lar or square form cut into a plurality of angular members and one straight member, so that when reassembled as hereinafter described, the parts Will form the rectangle or square.
In the drawing, Figure 1 is a perspective View of the members of the puzzle forming my invention, and Fig. 2 is a plan of the same showing the parts separated and in the position in which they must be assembled to form the square.
Referring to the drawing, it will be seen that in carrying out my invention, I prefer to employ a sheet of cardboard, metal, or other similar material, preferably in the form of a square. This is severed along the lines indicated in Fig. 1, to make the angular members 10 to 17 inclusive, and the straight member 18. It will be seen that the members 10 to 15 inclusive are similar in size and conguration; that the member 16 is of the same configuration and size as the members 10 to 15 inclusive, but reversed, while the member 17 is also similar in configuration, but smaller in size than the members 10 t0 15, inclusive, and the member 18 is straight. In order to assemble these membersto form-the square, it is necessary, as will be apparent, to place them in the positions indicated in the drawing, and in n0 other positions is it possible to so place them as to form the square from which they were originally cut. In carrying out the invention, it is also preferable to distinguish thel obverse from the reverse side of the puzzle, in order that they maybe properly placed with their faces upwardly in reassembling them to form the square. This may be done by making the obverse and reverse sides of different colors, providing the upper faces with figures or otherwise, as may be desired.
I claim as my invention:
A puzzle comprising six right-hand l.- shaped members of the same size, one lefthand L-shaped member also of the same size, one smaller right-hand L-shaped member1 and one straight member, all of which, when properly placed together, form a square.
Signed by me this 23rd day of June, 1914.
