About This Book

This beautifully illustrated volume examines the exquisite silver of the Straits Chinese, or Peranakans - Hindu-Islamic in shape and function but strangely characteristic of the Chinese in emblem and decorative design. Detailed information regarding the usage of the various articles as well as historic photographs and drawings vividly portray the now-lost world of the Straits Chinese. Notes, glossary and bibliography included.
