The U-Nit puzzle titled "White Swan Inn" is composed of 515 mahogany-backed pieces.  It includes 81 figurals, or pieces that resemble the shape of an object or silhouette.  They were hand cut by American carpenter James Browning (B. 1890).  Browning was the creator of U-Nit puzzles, which began in 1932 during the Great Depression, a time when work and income was limited.  His son became his apprentice and they continued to perfect the craft until the late 1970’s.
