Our Glorious Queen 1000 Piece Jigsaw Puzzle
HRH Queen Elizabeth II was born on the 21st April 1926 and has been the Queen of the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand since 6 February 1952. This commemorative jigsaw puzzle celebrates her long life so far, through photos, posters and various royal memorabilia that can be found in Robert Opie’s famous museum, The Museum of Brands.
For the past 50 years, Robert Opie has been finding the pieces that make up the giant jigsaw of British social history. His collection is on display at the Museum of Brands in Notting Hill, London, where the exhibitions give a sense of evolving culture and lifestyle since Victorian times.
This puzzle is perfect for anyone who wants a unique royal keepsake to remember Her Royal Highnesses special birthday!
Like every jigsaw in the Gibsons range, this 1000 piece puzzle is made from 100% recycled board of the highest quality, which means it is a joy to handle again and again.
The Artist: Robert Opie
Starting at the age of sixteen with a packet of Munchies, Robert Opie saw the need to record the history of everyday products around us and built up the collection that now extends to all aspects of daily life – toys, magazines, technology, travel, souvenirs, fashion and design.
His collection can now be viewed at The Museum of Brands, Packaging and Advertising. Set out in chronological order in the form of a “Time Tunnel” the museum gives visitors ‘a trip down memory lane’ and a chance to see how the brands around us have evolved from the naïve charm of Victorian times to the greater sophistication of today.
It also reflects the change in shopping habits, the impact of transportation, media, the effects of two world wars and the gradual emancipation of women.
