This Mah Jong set contains a superior version of the excellent quality Mah Jong tiles - made from bamboo and bone. These tiles have an aged bamboo backing of a darker colour which are connected to the front surface with a dove-tailed join.
The face of the mah jong tiles are hand-painted which again, is the mark of a superior tile but beware - hand-painted tiles have the odd imperfection and the imprint is often not as crisp as the less expensive printed tiles. Hand-painted tiles are less common and generally considered to be better quality but may not suit those who prefer their games to look 100% perfect.
This Mah Jong set is presented in a splendidly made Marquetry case to match the quality of the tiles. The case is inlaid in an attractive pattern and has a convenient carrying handle. Inside are 4 component trays.
The set is made up of 144 tiles in total:
Tiles have English numbers in the corner. Tiles have English numbers in the corner. Mah Jong rules are not included but are available on our website. Note this set does not have joker tiles or spare white tiles.
Our latest batch of these sets contains tiles with smudging that is worse than is typical. Being hand-painted there are always imperfections and the odd smudge or smear but these have noticeable smudging on many of the tiles. Tiles and box are still good quality but we do not feel we can sell these sets at full price. For that reason, we have reduced the price on these sets until further notice.
