Vintage Ultra Rare Rottgames Mah Jong Set With Coin Bank For Sale
Mah Jong Set This sale is for a vintage mah jong set. Made of catalin bakelite, 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 CHarli's pretty poppy sticker. This set is ready for both Chinese and NMJL play.The tiles measure 1 1/8 x 7/8 x 3/8 inches and are an orange-butterscotch. The one bam of this set is the distinguishing tile. It is worthy of being called rare as very few of them surface on the market. It is an early Rottgames variation. I nicknamed it the Rottie Jailbird because of the vintage "prison stripes" but it really is a pheasant, a Chinese Crested Pheasant. This is bird would make one set hunter a great trophy.The tiles are in excellent condition with great paint. A North tile face, not back, is slightly different in tone than the other tiles, but did not photograph that way. The North back blends perfectly. Also. if you look closely, a 7 Dot, has a ghost image of a 7 Dot upside down on the face. I am sure this means good luck... ;)
For all those who have succumbed to the allure of mah jong sets, another unusual feature of this set is the paint pattern on the dots. Several of them are different than the Rottgames Soaring Sparrow sets. This is another interesting distinction of this set besides the bird.A butterscotch catalin coin bank and five grass green catalin racks with coordinating butterscotch catalin stoppers hold the vintage Rottgames coins. The coin trays show some age but are uniformly dark bronze. The posts and flippies are tight and hold well. The accessories include the bank, coins, a transparent green and red catalin vintage bettor, a pair of green catalin dice and a Chinese silk purse.A black pebble-finish oilcloth case with brown felt lining and two black tile trays stores the set. This case is in excellent cosmetic condition. The locks and hardware are fully functional. The case has an intact, thick leather replacement handle.
