Mid century or older Mahkong (Mah Jong) set, Peacock series, carved bakelite tiles 144 pieces plus 20 other pieces in bottom tray. Original wood box with inlay, metal handles on top,five drawers. Offered as found at a very fine expensive estate years ago, we never learned how to play so know very little about this game, all pieces may or may not be original to the set. Pieces in very good condition structurally and aesthetically, with some wear on the odd 20 pieces in bottom tray. Some small inlay pieces missing on the box. Box is sturdy. If it had a front panel it is no longer there. It appears the Peacock series is not easy to find in old sets and very desirable for collectors. Also seems there are many ways to spell Mahjong, we used the one used in the Wikipedia title.
We have only seen one other set like this on the web, not for sale but identified as from New York by a company "Met". Assuming but not guaranteed that this is the maker.
