Brief Product Information

The best-known and – due to its deceptive simplicity – most interesting Vexier is the ‘Horseshoe Puzzle'. You have to remove the ring, at first sight an impossible task! Level of difficulty: 1. In cotton bag. Length 20.5 cm, width 9 cm. Weight 390 g. Suitable for children aged 14 or over.

Additional Information

‘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.
