Laerdal Frame Tray Puzzle from Norway - Alice at the White Rabbit's House

Beautiful frame tray puzzle from Norway, made by the Asmund S. Laerdal company.
It is unclear as to the vintage of this puzzle, but based on the other puzzles that came with this and the one tomorrow, I'm guessing late 1950s or early 1960s.

The Asmund S. Laerdal company - or more properly Åsmund S. Lærdal, was founded by, you guessed it, Åsmund S. Lærdal, a noted Norwegian physician.  According to his Wikipedia page, he founded the publishing house in 1940.  Surprisingly his major contribution to the world was not this puzzle, but rather CPR.  In fact, he was one of the developers of Annie, the CPR training mannequin.
