Product Description & Reviews

When mahjong first caught on in America in the 1920s, the elegant sets imported from Shanghai looked like this: finely polished cases made from elm and rosewood and hand painted tiles made from cattle bone and bamboo. This set is a reproduction of those classic sets, crafted by hand from white cattle bone and Chinese bamboo. The cover of the case is inlaid with a bone design of bats. Bats are a symbol of good luck in Chinese (and particularly among mahjong players), as the Chinese word for bat "fu" is a homonym for the word for luck. Please note that this is a hand made mahjong set made with natural materials using traditional methods. Each tile is cut and carved one piece a time, and the characters are inked by hand. Hand cut bone and bamboo tiles are slightly smaller than fibergla

Features & Highlights

  • Vintage inspired; just as in the first mahjong sets imported to America from Shanghai in the 1920s, the tiles of this particular set are handcrafted from snow white cattle bone and delicate slabs of Chinese bamboo; it includes a rosewood box that has a bone inlay with a design depicting bats (a symbol of good luck amongst Chinese mahjong players); the rosewood box dimensions are 13.3 x 7.6 x 3.2 inches (33.9 x 19.3 x 8.2 centimeters); complete set weighs 5.7 pounds (2.6 kilograms)
  • Well crafted tiles; bone and bamboo are cut and carved into tiles one at a time, and the markings are inked by hand; these tiles are slightly smaller than most other tiles in the market. Since these tiles are handcrafted, the color and shape charmingly and subtly vary from tile to tile and from set to set; each tile measures 1.3 x 0.9 x 0.5 inches (3.2 x 2.2 x 1.2 centimeters)
  • Complete set; includes 144 tiles consisting of 36 circles, 36 bamboos, 36 characters, 12 dragons, 16 winds (north, south, east, west), and 8 flowers; also included are 3 dice, a set of betting sticks, and 4 wind tiles for determining seating placement
  • Chinese mahjong only; no Arabic (western) numerals are inscribed on these tiles, but one who doesn't read Chinese could easily learn the few Chinese characters in this set; also, there are no Joker tiles (nor racks) included in this set; this set is for Chinese mahjong rules only
  • 30 day return policy; we want you to be satisfied with your purchase; you are backed by our 30 day no questions asked money back return policy so you can buy with confidence
