chinese-mahjong-set-shanghai-1920s-1

December 20, 2019

Nice example of a Shanghai Export mahjong set. These were made in workshops in the Shanghai area, and exported to the United States and Western Europe during the Mahjong craze of the 1920s.

Complete- but please note that with this set, the Green Dragon tiles have been substituted with Green Joker Chinese Horse tiles.
