Pentangle Treble Clef wire puzzle

Post by Daedalus » Sat 05 Oct, 2013 4:13 am

I have acquired an old wire link puzzle made by Pentangle. It dates from the days when their address was in Nether Wallop. It's called "Treble Clef", but is not the same as the one they currently sell (which is called "Double Treble Clef") The instructions with it just say "remove the treble clef", but this does not look to be possible without applying a lot of force. It is simple to remove the treble-clef-shaped piece if the two paperclip-shaped pieces are also removed (still attached to the clef) but that seems too easy. The puzzle came from a second-hand shop so may have been maltreated or mis-assembled. If anyone recognizes this puzzle I'll post a picture of it in its current state. I'd be grateful for some help as to what it should look like and what the actual goal is to solve it. But no solution hints please!
