Vintage Royal Games Swirled Catalin Mahjong Mah Jong Jongg Set- C. 1940's-1950's:
VINTAGE ROYAL GAMES "SWIRLED CATALIN" MAHJONG JONGG SET
This sale is for a rare and beautiful vintage Royal Games Mah Jong Jongg set from the 1940's-1950's. This set consists of 152 rich, glossy, deep amber-hued swirled Catalin tiles; 36 each Bams (Bamboo), Craks (Chinese Character) and Dots, numbered 1 through 9, 16 NEWS (Winds) tiles, 12 Dragon tiles - Red, White and Green, four each color, 8 properly sequenced and bouqueted Scholar and Seasons Flower tiles and 8 Jokers. The joker tiles were extra flower tiles from the set and match perfectly. The Dragon tiles in this set are especially rare; note the Green and White Dragon tiles have red tongues; the the Red Dragon tiles have black tongues.
The elegant Geisha Joker stickers are from CHarlisStickers.com. These tiles have terrific graphics and vibrant paint that is consistent on all tiles, which appear practically new. There is a replacement one-bam tile, as the original had a stress fracture, and it matches perfectly. The tiles measure 1" wide by 1/2" deep by 1 1/4" tall. This set is ready for either NMJL (American) or Asian play.
There are five original glossy, deep jewel-toned swirled Catalin racks with swirled tile stops, all in good vintage condition. The coin trays are clean with a bit of tarnish.
Note: The last photo illustrates what a few swirled Catalin tiles can look like. There are a few in every swirled set and blend in well during play.
The set is housed in a new faux alligator case, as the original case did a great job of protecting the set, but it was beyond repair. This case has a soft lining that cushions and protects the tiles, and the set is odor-free.
To complete this set I have added 100 smooth vintage coins, a pair of "Lime Juice" Catalin dice, a beautiful swirled butterscotch Catalin bettor with a green underside, and a green and gold embroidered Chinese silk pouch in which to keep them.
