Century Chinese bovine and bamboo complete Mahjong set. A very good looking and well made Victorian set, its complete with brass handled carry case, all the original tiles are in place plus all the games counters, blank tiles and so on.
This is a sublime highly collectable set that would make a great gift. You can tell the age and quality of the set by the thickness of the tile and how well carved the joint is on the tile, as you can see the bamboo takes up around 55% of the tile space, on the lesser sets its 80-90% bamboo, also this has a high quality hand carved long thing joint.
