The Embossing Company, Albany, New York is the manufacturer of this neat little set. 144 tiles, the frame is raised on each tile and the design is then pressed. The tiles really are shades of orange. Betting sticks are wood and the colors match the colors in the set.  The number one Dots have different designs in the center and the dragons are the Phoenix, Dragon and blank.  The flowers depict the four honorable occupations, the fisherman, the woodcutter, the farmer and the scholar. The tiles with flowers/plants represent the four seasons,  Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter.
