This is a very beautiful and colorful puzzle by Castorland. The title is Uskudar Mosque, Istanbul. Although there is no reference to the artist in the box, it is a copy of an original work by Thomas Allom. In fact, it was originally an engraving for a travel book of the 19th century. (Thank you very much again to my friend Amparo for finding all this valuable information).
The puzzle is NEW, with its original FACTORY SEAL. Two corners of the box are slightly dented.
There are not many puzzles with paintings by Thomas Allom. In 2005 Educa published a 1000 piece version of Golden Horn, Istanbul.
