Objective
Remove the star from the snake and replace it

At the end of the 19th century, Britain experienced a huge puzzle craze. I managed to pick up a number of the puzzles famous during that period in the flea markets, despite their rarity. Based on these original puzzles from Britain's famous puzzle period, this is one that we have successfully revived in its new form. The key part of this puzzle is the "star", which needs to be freed from the snake binding it. If only the star wasn't so stubborn in its return to the snake. -Nob Yoshigahara
