Antique Mah Jong Mahjong Set with Fully Carved Carrying Case & Carved Handles

Here we have a wonderful antique set of Mah Jong / Mahjong which is in a superb rare carrying case which has been carved with lovely decorative scenes and has a wonderful handle incorporating raying men or Budhas. This is an exception mah jong set with the carvings to the tiles being exceptionally fine which is very difficult to convey through photographs.

The tiles themselves are approximately 50/50 bovine to bamboo (made from bovine from cow shine bone which is not an endangered species). There are 144 tiles that have been constructed from bovine from cow shine bone which is not an endangered species dovetailed into bamboo. The bottom of the front panel is pressed in, this releases the front panel and it can be slid down and pushed in below the bottom tray. This allows the five trays to be pulled out. This is a very rare example and is superbly detailed not only in the carrying box but the mah jong pieces also. We have photographed the pieces in detail to allow you to view for yourself.

There are a total of 148 tiles. All tiles have been photographed.

There are also counting sticks (made from bovine from cow shine bone which is not an endangered species), four small dice and there is also a lovely wind disc with the Chinese symbols for North, East, South and West. The carrying case measures approximately. 9 1/2 inches / 24 cm wide x 6 3/4 inches / 17 cm deep x 9 inches / 23 cm high. 3.0 cm long x 2.2 cm deep x 1.2 cm high. CONDITION: The set is in lovely condition and is very finely detailed as can be seem from the photographs.

The carrying case is also in superb condition, just minor knocks, marks commensurate with age and careful use and there is a shringake line through the front panel. Please study photographs carefully as they form part of the description and condition, as what you view is exactly what you will receive. If you have time please check out my other items.
