Vintage 1950's e.S. Lowe bakelite mah jongg set152 tiles completewith case and racks listed for auction is a 1950's e.S. Lowe bakelite mah jongg set. The tiles are in very nice condition with a nice light shade of butterscotch catalin color. Although the set probably dates to the 1950's, the tiles and the paint are in very nice condition. This set was produced by the e.S. Lowe company of new york and is believed to be from the late 1950's. The set comes with 152 tiles and all appear to be original to the set. There are two (2) original "mah-lowe" jokers and six (6) other flower tiles have been stickered as jokers to go with the two original jokers. The set is ready to play with current nmjl rules. The tiles measure 1 7/32" x 7/8" x 1/2". The colors are nice and bright with a little wear and are in an overall very nice condition.

Included with the set are two vintage red translucent dice and two bags of vintage betting coins. There are four nice brown wooden vintage racks.
