I love the design of the one bamboo in this game - it is quite rare and well carved. This is a lovely little bone & bamboo game with all its original 148 tiles (144 for play and 4 spares). The game is from the mid to late 1940's and has the original "simpler" style character design confirming its age. There are 8 flowers, 2 bouquet of flowers each numbered 1-4. The flower tiles in this game lead you through scenery ... one set seems to dance over the hills and mountains, the other makes you feel like you are searching for herbs. They are quite delightful.
The tiles have a 40/60 split (40% bone and 60% bamboo). Although there are games with thicker bone this game more than makes up for this in its design.
The game comes in its original leather case. It has lift out trays that hold the tiles and still has its original fabric lining in the lid. The trays are in a matching colour. The box also has its original leather handle which is still securely fastened to the case. The box has a lock on the front and two side locks to keep the tiles safe. There are some scuffs on the outside of the box but it is still very sturdy.
For anyone wishing to add a lovely vintage game to their collection or perhaps start a collection this is a great addition to anyone's home ...
