‘Vexiers: hand-forged from the USA.
‘Vexiers’ is the name that connoisseurs give to puzzles like these, where the player has to take a ring-formed assemblage (mostly of wire components) apart and then try to put them together again. Our impressively heavy, hand-forged pieces come from Tavern Puzzles, an American firm founded by the museum smith Dennis Sucilsky in 1975. In the old days, it was part of the blacksmith apprentice’s training to make several of these. We offer here three selected from the full Tavern Puzzle collection range, graded in difficulty from 1 (easy) to 8 (very hard). Solutions included.
