A really dinky mahjong set. The tiles are complete, and fit snugly into the rectangular wooden box. Above is a lift-out tray to hold the counting sticks, die and wind discs. Nice design. The tiles are made from 'ivorine', an early plastic intended to imitate ivory, and popular at the beginning of the 20th century.
