The puzzle has a lovely silky matt finish. It is non glare and so could be displayed as a piece of artwork once finished which is perfect as I chose this particular puzzle because I love Margaret’s work. The colours look really deep and rich too. I was really glad that it came with a 500-piece option for those like me who love jigsaws but with little time and space to complete them! The pieces themselves are quite large but that does make it less likely to lose a piece. I bought this for myself but it would make a good gift and the box it comes in looks really nice too. A good quality product.
