a.k.a. Cigar Puzzle
Garner Products, New York; this one for sale in 1950's.
(wood pieces on metal spindle, 5.2" long x 3/4" diameter)
This puzzle was purchased from a seller who said that it came from residual stock of
Glenn's Novelty Shop,
16th and Market St.,
where his father worked when the shop closed shop in 1959.
Subsequently I received an email from Michel van Ipenburg,
a puzzle collector,
who kindly shared the image of the directions to this puzzle that are shown on the following page.
The directions list objects to make from the pieces,
