In the early part of the 20th century, decorative tiles popularly known as 'maiolica' or 'majolica' tiles across the world, found favour with the affluent Peranakan community of a Singapore. The Peranakans decorated their houses, furniture and other surfaces with these colourful tiles. Soon enough, these tiles became a distinctive feature of this community and they began to be referred to as 'Peranakan tiles'. This book attempts to showcase some of these exquisite tiles seen across Singapore today. It also aims create awareness about this fragile legacy that needs to be conserved for the generation to come.
