This page features Culin-patterned (Category 2.0) bone and bamboo tile sets in slide-top containers made of wood or tin.
These containers are either flat and rectangular, or cubic shaped or intermediate in form. The small, cubic-style wooden box is the oldest so far documented.
The woods used could be mahogany (stained black in some cases) or padouk or some other exotic wood. Most often they were decorated with sinograms on the top lid, painted in green, silver or gold.
This Gallery also features a box made of tin.
