1930's original and complete Chinese mah jong set of 144 two tone bakelite tiles, plus a seldom seen set of 4 generous coral coloured and lacquered tile racks gilded and painted with similar but differing landscape designs to each one. Each design also includes two different figures painted within each landscape. Therefore, each individual player has a unique rack.

The case is also original to the set, and is a leather type covering with blue fabric interior.
