Description:

This delightful thick boned, beautifully carved bone & bamboo game from the 1940's is presented for adoption.

This game has really nice tiles that are very clean with lovely white bone fronts and the desirable plant pot style flowers.

I particularly like the flower tiles in this game as they are lovely examples of the coveted "plant pot" style. They are very detailed and beautifully painted and coupled with the extra thick bone to bamboo ration have a lovely weight to them during play. There are two fully sequenced flowers each numbered 1-4.

And take a look at the honor tiles (winds) they too are clear and very readable. The dragon tiles are traditional Chinese characters (red and green) and the white dragon is totally blank.

The game is housed in its original leather box. There are wear and tear marks on the leather but the seams are intact and it has all its original tile trays and all three latches (a front and two side latches) still work. And even the leather carrying handle is intact - more often than not these are usually broken or lost.

There are a total of 152 tiles with a bone to bamboo ratio "70/30" - 70% bone and 30% bamboo. 152 tiles means this game has all its original 144 tiles plus 8 matching tiles that have been added and 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 lovely quality bone & bamboo game with super thick 70/30 tiles - it will make a great addition to anyone's Mah Jong collection or could, perhaps, be the "special" game we all choose to fetch out at our Mahj evenings.

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