I let Alex know about the response to my posting on these fantastic Mah Jongg decanters and he has graciously put them up on his Etsy shop so that you can now purchase them for holiday gifts! Here is what Alex has to say about these beautiful and unusual decanters: This is the Twin Mini Mahjong Decanters made of Ceramic. The mahjong tile is the Green Dragon (pronounced FA) finished in color Red for representing prosperity. The design is taken from the old bone and bamboo mahjong tile. As the details on the side of the decanter still shows how bone and bamboo are put together. The bamboo details on the back goes all around from top to side.The ceramic is made in 1200 celsius degree baking oven for 12 hours. The straight corners of the rectangular decanter that holds the shape of mahjong is especially difficult to make.
And here is the original posting from the blog:
Our friend in Taiwan, the entrepreneurial and very clever Alex Chang (the creator of the absolutely fabulous Holiday Mah Jong Set), sent me the most fabulous gift – liquor in Mah Jongg-stylized tile bottles! I so love this gift – these fabulous bottles are now proudly displayed in my bar! And what a great gift to give to your Mah Jongg playing friends!
Look at this fabulous presentation box:
Open it up and there are two bottles shaped just like Mah Jongg tiles!
The back of each bottle lets you know what is inside.
There’s even a spout to insert into each bottle to allow for an easy pour!
There is also a booklet (which, unfortunately, I haven’t translated just yet) –
The booklet contains some wonderful photos and drawings…
And, just to finish off the gift, Alex enclosed darling Mah Jong Holiday postcards. Alex – thank you so very much for this wonderful holiday gift!!!
