Vintage, Mahjong Tiles 144 Piece Bone & Bamboo Dovetail Handpainted Box
Colors are clean and bright. Each Tile is in very good condition and the bamboo is clean and the bone and bamboo is nicely dovetailed. The unique part is the box. Is something that I can't identify. It is beautifully hand painted with traditional Chinese/Japanese scenes. It features brass hardware; handles on each side and a latch in the front. Notice the nail heads around the box which adds its own dimension to the piece.

I have never seen anything like this before. Each tile measures, 7/8" wide x 1 1/2" long x 1/2 thick. The box measures, 11 1/2" long x 6 1/4" wide x 5 1/4" tall x 3" deep.

I have taken good pics so you can see the uniqueness of this item. Thank you so much for looking!
