This is probably one of the promotional sets I talk about, the inside of the box and the book are stamped with the name of an insurance company. Neat little set, I just wish that the gold paint on the tiles was all there. It is a bit hard to photograph so you will have to forgive me for 'enhancing' some of the pictures so you can see it better. I have included a picture of the dragon that is on the front of the booklet and the box, the dragons on the tiles are the same design with the tail curled up under him.

148 tiles, four of which are wind tiles rather than a Mingg Jar. All tiles are wood, lightly embossed and painted. Very nice designs on these and very different from the more common sets. There are quite a few betting sticks, made of wood and painted with dots like the more familiar bone betting sticks. A pair of dice and a really nice little book. The box is heavy cardboard covered with colored paper that is fragile from age. There are 5 trays for tiles and betting sticks. The trays have little ribbons for lifting out of the outer box.

The tiles measure 1 1/8" x 7/8" x 7/16", the designs are embossed (lightly) and painted. The box measures 9" x 4 1/2" x 3 1/4". The books measure 6 1/2" x 4 3/4" and has 20 pages.
