My family has two mahjong sets that were my grandmother's. She received them from her friend Ruth Whitaker who loved to travel with her family. My grandmother is Edith Marie Lyons Myers. One is in a small rectangle box and maybe a double decker. I have another one in a long rectangle box and the box is deteriorating so I put it into a storage box for preservation.
