Ladies Invade Homes in Search of Mah Jongg Sets!   

IsraelSwainAnn 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.

Twilight Watson's insight

"at maximum"? All 14 of them! 1-4 pin, 2-5-8 pin, 3-9 pin, 4 sou, 2-5-8 sou, 6-9 sou, white dragon But the result doesn't look like near any knitted fan, and the tiles aren't isolated anymore: 1234589 pin, 254689 sou, white The only remarkable pattern I see is 2-5-8 in both pinzu and souzu. This is not enouth to make a hand, but maybe the new fan doesn't concerne the whole hand.
