"The name originally given to this puzzle, Cross Breaker, drew criticism from people who considered it sacrilegious. As a result, the name was later changed to Cross Puzzle, and the elves were pictured mending rather than smashing the cross."--Lilly Library. The Jerry Slocum Mechanical Puzzle Collection.
"Made in Germany."--Box top.
