Mah Jong was a popular game in the 20's, 30's and 40's in America. It was mostly played by women. Of course, it is an Asian game where it is mostly played by men. I just love the way that the game looks.

Of course you could make jewelery out of the pieces but that would be somewhat sad.

Do you want to learn to play? It is a relatively easy game to learn. If you can learn rummy you can learn this. This is basically a card game with the cards being these hard tiles.

Need a decor item in an Asian themed area? A set decoration? Doing a film or play about America in the the 30's? A Jewish history themed thing? (It was very popular in Jewish circles as well).

This is a boxed, complete set of Mah Jongg that is probably from the 1940's. Some of the bits are celluloid. Such as the box that contains the "North, South, East, West tiles and dice". The items that keep the score are plastic or celluloid as well. The tiles are a thin celluloid or plastic piece over wood. The tiles are in fairly good condition considering age. There are some that are dinged and dirty. (I rarely clean things but you may be able to get these looking even better).

The box is great. However, the cover art has faded over the years. It is still in very good shape. There is a sticker on the inside that was placed there by the manufacturer which indicates the value of the different colored "counters". This sticker has the word "lavender" crossed out and the word "blue" has been hand written next to it.

There are four blank tiles as well.

This is a wonderful set. (I have two and this is the oldest one but I am keeping the others).

Enjoy!
