Vintage Japanese mahjong matchbox labels on eBay

There's an interesting lot of forty-nine mahjong-themed matchbox panels from 1920's / 30's Japan on eBay at the moment.

Current price is up to US$28 after two bids with five days remaining. Seller is in Kyoto.

Nice little collection (see links for pics) - evocative of smoke-filled parlours where you probably couldn't even see your toimen's discards!
