Tavern Puzzles were traditionally forged by blacksmiths to amuse their friends at country taverns and inns. These are hand crafted by a talented blacksmith in East Setauket, New York using traditional and original designs.
The object of each puzzle is to remove (and reassemble) one piece. Each puzzle is mechanical in nature and you don't need to force it or use any trick to solve it. All you need is good old fashioned problem solving.
Old Shackles: The object is to remove the large ring.
An old favorite in taverns and inns. The real test is getting the ring back on! It engages people to try, because it looks so simple. It's a challenge, without too much frustration in the solving process.
Packaged in a cloth drawstring gift bag.
