Description:

Offered for adoption is a lovely bone & bamboo game with a rather nice small wooden case. Unusually this is not made from Rosewood - it is a little like oak but I am not sure what it is exactly. I was lucky to have found extra tiles to convert this game to have 152 tiles so it is ideal for anyone wishing to play using NMJL (National Mah Jong League) or Chinese rules.

The tiles are nicely carved and the bone is very clean. This case is in really great condition the box is intact, has all its brass corner trim, all its pull handles and both top carrying handles! It is a tiny bit smaller than some of the Rosewood cases and it looks very nice!

The flowers are a combination of flowers and transportation and scenery. The dragons are traditional Chinese characters - appropriately traditional for a game from the mid 1940's. The character tiles assist with dating the game - they are the "simple" style.

There are a total of 152 tiles with a bone to bamboo ratio "40/60" - 40% bone and 60% 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!

I love this cute game - we have played with it many time and it has been very popular with my Mahj group.

A great addition to anyone's Mah Jong evenings!

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