|The pictures show top and bottom views of this Old Robert Journet & Company ''Merry Toast'' Dexterity Puzzle Game. This game is not dated but it is old. It is made of glass, wood, paper, cardboard, and capsules. The object is to get small wooden pieces into each of the three drink glasses (capsules) held by the Englishman and the ladies. (note: the man on the right does not have a glass in his hand, as made). There are four wooden pieces inside but they are hidden by the paper frame. One can be seen in the upper right corner. The puzzle surface is marked as follows:|
