Tucker Jones Iron Maiden Tavern Puzzle
Level: Intermediate - Made in the USA


According to 18th century custom, "the maiden of the harvest" was the last bit of wheat from the fields shaped into a female figure. Here she is in 20th century iron.
Not the same device found in a chamber of horrors, or a one-hit rock band. This lady may torture you, nonetheless. (1982)

Object: Remove large ring.
Level: Intermediate

Tavern Puzzles® are reproductions of a type of puzzle traditionally forged by blacksmiths to amuse their friends at country taverns and inns. Keeping with tradition, a museum-trained blacksmith from Long Island has reproduced some of these antique designs as well as his own original designs. All the puzzles are handcrafted and individually assembled. Each puzzle is mechanical in nature; removal of the object piece does not rely on force or trickery.

The Tavern Puzzle Collection has four categories of difficulty, starting with Basic and ending with Complex.

Which puzzle is for you?

Basic: Only a few steps. Good for beginners and in social settings.

Intermediate: More steps than basic designs, but straightforward.

Difficult: Multi-step sequences; some are combined maneuvers from basic and intermediate categories. Often with close tolerances that require precise movements.

Complex: Many moves and flexible chains, requiring a lot of concentration. Not recommended for novices.

All puzzles are made from 6mm steel; some include wooden beads. Dimensions: 8” – 14” long, 4” – 6” wide. Weight: 12 – 20 ounces.

Puzzles are packaged in a drawstring muslin bag with information sheet that shows the puzzle and the objective. Solutions are not packaged with the puzzles.

100% Handcrafted in the USA.
