It is an original antique Mah-jong game made of bone and bamboo, in the original, solid wood carry case, with sliding front door, five wooden drawers with silver metal drawer pulls, and metal handle.
The gentleman I purchased the set form said it was his father's, he had inherited the set form his grandmother, who had grown up, and lived her life in Hawaii. This gentleman guessed the set is circa 1920's, but was not positive on its date of origin.
The set has obviously been well cared for, and appears to be complete. There are some very small, detailed, and rare peices included, such as the littel round container for the 4 smaller chips, plus one larger chip, wich is probaly part of the container, (I was told these were used to determine seating arrangement), the great minature sliding lid box with 4 tiny dice!
116 Betting Sticks
4 Small Chips, 1 Large Chip, plus Round Container
Sliding Lid Dice Box, plus 4 Dice
Original 5-Drawer Solid Wood Carry Case with Sliding Door and Metal Handle
This one is unique in that it has been taken care of, and is in outstanding condition! Its box does have some sepration at the wooden joints near the front, but is still very solid, and functional.
