I have finally come to the realization it is time to start downsizing my Mah Jong collection of almost 20 years. The games in my store have all been lovingly displayed and played with over the years I have owned them and I truly hope their new adopting family will treasure them as much as I have !
This ES Lowe game is one of the two styles of games ES Lowe is known for - the traditional "crane" style. This game is not the earliest version of ES Lowe games because it has the baron tiles numbered 1-5 (rather than flower tiles). In addition it has the worker tiles that represent Chinese occupations numbered 1-5. The tiles are made of Bakelite.
This game has 10 flowers (barons & occupations), 2 sets of fully sequenced bouquets numbered 1-5 with 6 additional stickered joker tiles. The case is in sturdy condition with a Bakelite handle and maroon felt lining.
The racks are swirled Bakelite in minty green, strawberry sherbet, butterscotch lemon and rich burgundy with Bakelite E's. Tokens are included with the game.
I have a full set of photos available if you would like me to send them to you. And I would be very happy to answer any questions you may have regarding this lovely old beauty.
