This collector's American mahjong set comes with a vintage style wooden box and 166 tiles crafted from cattle bone and bamboo. A true classic!

  • Handcrafted Mahjong Tiles: Each tile measures 1.2 x 0.8 x 0.5 inch (3.1 x 2.1 x 1.2 centimeters) and are traditional standard size, making them slightly smaller than contemporary tiles; Tile markings are carved and painted by hand, and the bone and bamboo halves are dovetailed together; Since the tiles are handcrafted, the color and shape charmingly and subtly vary

Pretty good reproduction, but defective.

This set is similar to the wood boxes from the 1920s, except for the disappointing masonite back panel with holes to stick your fingers through to push open the drawers. The bamboo and bone tiles are handmade and nice. But my box has a deep crack in the wood, and one of the tiles has a distinctive stain that is visible while playing. I notified Yellow Mountain Imports of the problems about a week ago, but no answer from them yet, only an acknowledgment that they received my message.
