Hi I recently was given this mah-jong set
I believe the pieces are Bakelite but stand to be corrected!
Please let me know your thoughts on its age/value
It has 144 tiles with an extra 4 blank tiles and two small boxes of counters
Much appreciated!
Milton

Dip a Q-Tip in a little Formula 409 and swab the side of a tile; if it comes away yellow, it's Bakelite.

From the pictures it looks like a fairly ordinary set. The tiles don't have any especially distinctive design. I wouldn't get too attached to its monetary value.

If they are bamboo backed, the price might be higher. They don't look like the desirable sets like "owl", and they might be real Bakelite.

But the quality doesn't look there, so if they are Bakelite, maybe $75-100.

Bamboo backed, maybe $100-150.
