Description:

Offered for adoption is a traditional sitting sparrow bone & bamboo game from the late 1940's with a twist - the one bamboo has a rather large & thick plumage with an unusual predominance of green!

There are the usual two sets of flowers with this game featuring 2 complete bouquets each numbered 1-4. Both sets represent garden herbs and wild flowers and are nicely colorful.

This game is from the late 1940's as evidenced by the "simple" style character tiles.

The game is housed in its original Rosewood box - all the brass corner trim is in place. it even has all its original drawer pulls. This particular style of pull with the circle often gets broken so it's nice to see a case that has stood the test of time.

There are a total of 152 tiles with a bone to bamboo ratio "20/80" - 20% bone and 80% bamboo. 152 tiles means this game has all its original tiles (144 playing tiles). Added to these 144 tiles are 8 matching tiles that have been stickered for use as jokers. Because of the added tiles this game can be played with using National Mah Jong League (NMJL) or traditional Chinese rules - the best of both worlds!

This is a really sweet little game with very nice pieces and a complete original case.

Let me know if I can help with any more information.
