Another 'primitive' set, carefully made by hand. After looking at the pictures very closely I can see that this artist painted the designs on with a very fine brush, maybe a brush with only 2 or 3 hairs on it. The artist also made betting pieces and painted those. The box is hand crafted with a compartment to hold the betting pieces and a separate compartment for the tiles.

There are 144 tiles that measure 1" x 13/16" x 5/8". The box measures 9 7/8 " x 5 7/8" x 3 1/4 ".
