The "Newport Set" from Parker Bros. This is a more traditional style box with five drawers, four for tiles and one for the accessories. The front sliding door has the brass trademark plate that is seen on the top 3 sets, The Club, The Tuxedo and this one. The tiles in these 3 sets are also the same, French Ivory face with wood back. I think you should notice that only 35 tiles fit in each drawer, not 36 like bone & bamboo sets.

There are 144 tiles that measure 1 3/16" x 7/8" x 1/2". The box measures 7 3/8 " x 7 1/2" x 5 1/2 ". The rule book (by Babcock) measures 5 3/8" x 4 1/4" and has 36 pages.

This is the most elaborate set sold under the Parker Brothers name.
