Williams Ellis 200-Piece Snow White Puzzles #1-8

In the United Kingdom, circa 1938-39, puzzle manufacturer Willliams Ellis Co., Ltd. issued a series of eight numbered Snow White jigsaws, each containing over 200 die-cut pieces. Puzzle dimensions: 14" x 10". Retail price per box: sixpence. 

The package designs are identical with an illustration and text on both sides, except that on the front, Snow White holds a B+W photo of the individual puzzle. On the back, is a list of the eight in the series. Box measures approximately 8" x 5". Lining the top and bottom edges are the dwarf heads.
