MahJong Game Set in Cabinet Box, N.Y.K. Fleet Ocean Liner Edition

$2,895Asking Price

About

A fine boxed Mahjong (or Mah Jong) set from early 20th century Imperial Japan, complete with brass handled and bound wooden carry case - with all the original tiles of bovine bone and bamboo, games counters, and blank tiles - all in fitted trays. With original instruction booklet - the N.Y.K. Fleet Ocean Liner Edition. Nippon Yusen Kaisha is a Japanese steamship company that traces its history back to the Tsukumo Shokai Shipping company founded by the Tosa clan in 1870. In 1875, as the renamed Mitsubishi Shokai, the company inaugurated Japan's first passenger liner service, with a route from Yokohama to Shanghai; and in that same year, the company name was changed to Mitsubishi Mail Steamship Company. In 1885, a merger with Kyodo Unyu Kaisha (founded 1882) led to the adoption of the company's present name. The merged company had a fleet of 58 steamships and expanded its operations rapidly, first to other Asian ports and then worldwide, with a line service to London being inaugurated in 1899.
