Vintage Mah Jong Set: Chinese Bakelite (9351)

  • $165.00


"Chinese Bakelite" -- Many collectors refer to non-shiny yellow tiles as "Chinese Bakelite." One theory is, that these tiles are actually pulverised reconstituted fishbone, dyed yellow. "Chinese Bakelite" tiles are not shiny like Bakelite/Catalin tiles, and these tiles do not have the rounded edges that Bakelite/Catalin tiles have. Just one of the tiles is missing its red base (see photo)

The Case measures 360mm wide x 250mm deep x 50mm high.
The Trays measure 440mm in length.
