shanghai-mahjong-set-circa-1925

March 14, 2016

This attractive mahjong set is complete. The tiles are made from an early plastic, similar to celluloid: some ‘age crazing’ in places and several tiles have been annotated numerals, written neatly in pen.

The box or case is ‘good’: slight warping to one edge (near the sliding front), but otherwise ‘very good’ with very minor rubbing and the usual surface nicks and very minor scratches. Drawer has crack along the bottom.

Would make a charming and unusual present for a keen mahjong player.
