Unique Older Mono Bridge Mahjong Mah Jongg Tile Set-great Graphics:
Don't you just love the sassy squatting peacock bird bam on this set? You can't help but smile when you look at him. These sets were made in the 1930's and 40's, and as you can see from the photos, the designs are deeply etched with brightly painted colors. Each tile is clean and shiny showing a softer lighter yellow hue. Using a caliper ruler, the tiles measure 1 1/4 x 7/8 x 7/16.
Complete with 152 tiles: 36 each bams, cracks and dots
numbered 1-9, 16 NEWS winds, 12 dragons, 4 green, red and white. Extra flower/season tiles were included with this set. Eight were stickered as jokers. NO NEW TILES were added to this set. The backs of the tiles are very similar in color, with the natural fading of a vintage set.
The flower and season tiles are especially lovely on this set and in perfect order. What a joy to find a set with the extra tiles..a real rarity!!!
The vintage racks are the heavier swirled catalan...red, saffron, light green and a darker rich green. All racks are in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. Brass coin ends add to the luxuriousness, with all flippies working well. Eighty older coins are included, as is a pair of red dice.
The green faux leather case is in very good condition, and is a substantially heavier case with the usual corner wear. The tile trays are very nice and support the tiles nicely. Both clasps work easily and freely. The case has no moldy or smoky smell.
The winner of this set will experience many years of pleasure due to the wonderful graphics of the tiles, the lighter shade of color, and the soft feel of each tile.
A LITTLE ABOUT THE SETS I SELL.... You will find NO surprises when you purchase one of my sets. I play Mah Jongg regularly and know what to look for in a set and what is needed to present a complete set to sell. I clean and polish each tile and note any flaws in them. I also clean and polish each rack, tighten and clean the coin ends if needed, and clean each case with a light leather cleaner, then finish with lemon oil. If the case has an odor, I make every attempt to remove it. I replace or repair broken handles. I provide specific pictures of the set and ALWAYS include front and back photos of the tiles in order for the buyer to see how well they blend together with the usual added jokers. I make every effort to match tiles by size and color for the added jokers. I often have my Mah Jongg group play with a set to give response or suggestions. I will gladly share those suggestions if you email me.
I offer this set honestly, with minor flaws mentioned. I will always try to accurately and honestly present the sets I intend to sell. The pictures are part of the description, so please study them carefully and ask questions before the end of the sale. This set would truly be a wonderful addition to your collection or your enjoyment of playing. If you would like further photos, please email me. If a reserve price is listed, I will share the price if you email me.
High buyer pays with Pay Pal only and the item will be shipped Priority Mail to the Continental USA only. I will consider other types of shipping. The shipping price does not include insurance. I pack each set with careful detail so they will arrive safely and intact.
