Ladies Invade Homes in Search of Mah Jongg Sets!   

Swain & IsraelAnn M. Israel and Gregg Swain were after private Western mah jongg collections when they invaded many homes during their search, but they aren’t burglars! They are photo-archeologists, and private homes were their dig! Hidden deep in the dark of basements, closets, and attics all over this world are some of the most amazing mah jongg treasures people might never see; tiles carefully hand carved and painted by artisans long forgotten. Like skillful and patient archeologists, Ann M. Israel and Gregg Swain set out to unearth these lost works of art before they are forgotten forever.

From dices to tiles

I like your approach, c00pdNnatop. Speaking of "dots" I see the following version of events. Mrs. Hudson before acquaintance with mahjong played a lot games with dices ("yahtzee" etc.). When she looked at tiles D1, D3, D4 the appearance of "spots" reminded her spots at dices -- each such spot was corresponding to one point. So, she "sees" 14 spots at Dot tiles??
