Good. Elaborate bone inlay. Crack to the bottom of one of the trays. Tiles excellent with very little rubbing. Paper instruction pamphlet stained to the front. A nice example of a 1920s Shanghai Export mahjong set.

Nice example of a Shanghai Export mahjong set of a larger size. Elaborate bone inlay and decorative silver or white-metal mounts.
