Vintage Pillowed Chinese Bakelite Sprout Mah Jong Set For Sale

Vintage Pillowed Chinese Bakelite Sprout Mah Jong Set

Vintage Chinese Bakelite Mah Jong Set This sale is for a hand carved vintage mah jong set. Made of Chinese bakelite and pillowed in form, the set consists of 152 tiles: 36 each bams, craks and dots numbered 1-9, 16 NEWS winds, 12 dragons green, red and white four each, 8 bouqueted and sequenced flowers and 8 stickered jokers.The stickered jokers are tiles that were selected to match the set and display the lovely geisha designed by CHarli. This set is ready for both Chinese and NMJL play.The tiles measure 1 1/8 x 7/8 x 1/2 inches and are yellow-orange. The one bam of this set known as a "sprout", a bamboo sprout, is the distinguishing tile. The term "pillowed" refers to the rounded edges of the tiles. The tile sides are rounded with pointed corners, like a pillow. Unlike the matte finish type of Chinese bakelite, this tile surface is glass-smooth and shiny. The carving is superior with delicate, refined channels. The paint and condition of the tiles is excellent. There must have been stickers covering some of the flowers as some faces are lighter and show the demarcation in tone, but the image is still fresh and strong. The jokers blend imperceptibly. There is a #4 flower that shows a small indentation at its upper left corner of its face. It must be a factory flaw because the paint and carving go right over the depression.The different and delightful one bam makes "The Sprout" among the most sought-after of mah jong sets . The pillowed tiles are an equally desirable attribute. This set has both.The set includes five grass green with yellow swirl catalin racks with bright, clean coin trays. The posts and flippies are tight and hold well. Included in the accessories are a set of vintage "bakelite" smooth coins, a two tone transparent green and yellow catalin vintage bettor and a pair of green catalin dice.A brown faux alligator oilcloth case with brown felt and faux tweed oilcloth lining and two matching faux tweed tile trays houses the set. This case is in excellent cosmetic condition with just a couple of minor blemishes. The locks and hardware are fully functional. The case has an intact, thick leather handle.
