I was checking out some Pinterest pinnings when I happened upon this circa 1930 Hermès Mah Jongg set with an interesting description written below it. I thought you might enjoy this:
“…and when i thought i’ve seen it all, there comes the special order chinese mahjong set circa the 1930’s. my yahoo translator tells me the tiles were made from mahogany tree and fawn-coloured leather, and something in bone and ivory too. i mean, which opium den owner commissioned this exceptional piece, and whose unfilial descendants are selling it now? this unusual lot has an estimate of €1,500 – €2,000. that’s a lot of mahjong money i say.”
Gorgeous. Are you buying it?
