Chinese Rosewood Mahjong Set with 5 Drawer Box
Brand: Yellow Mountain Imports
A fine mahjong set brings elegance and color to a room even when it's not being played, and this set is one of the finest we've seen. With five sliding drawers in a richly colored rosewood block inlaid with shell decorations of birds in flight, this set will delight your friends and brighten your home.
This set is a reproduction of the classic sets from Shanghai that first sparked mahjong's popularity in the West in the 1920's. The tiles are made from crisp new bamboo and snow white cattle bone, inscribed with fabulously colored designs.
Please note that this is a hand made mahjong set made with natural materials using traditional methods. Each tile is cut and carved one piece a time, and the characters are inked by hand. Hand cut bone and bamboo tiles are slightly smaller than fiberglass mahjong tiles, and coloring and shape varies slightly from tile to tile and set to set.
- Contains 36 Circles, 36 Bamboos, 36 Characters, 12 Dragons, 16 Winds (N, S, E, W), 8 Flowers.
- Includes a pair of dice, a set of betting sticks, and four wind tiles for determining seating placement.
- The case measures 9-1/4"L x 6-5/8"W x 7-1/2"H (23.5cm x 17cm x 19cm)
- Tiles measure 1-3/16"L x 13/16"W x 1/2"H (3.2cm x 2.2cm x 1.2cm) and are inscribed with Chinese characters only
- PLEASE NOTE: This is a traditional Chinese mahjong set designed for Chinese mahjong rules.
