产品描述

Hindu-Islamic in shape and function, yet characteristic of the Chinese in emblem and design, the fine silver of the Straits Chinese is an unusual melding of two traditions. Their exquisite workmanship, however, was not always correctly attributed to silversmiths from mainland China, who had settled in small towns in Malaya and Singapore and produced these pieces exclusively for the local community. Settling along the major trade route that opened up between China and the Indian Ocean along the Malacca Strait, the so-called Straits Chinese or Peranakan brought much of their Chinese culture with them, yet also took on much of the local culture from Malaysia, Indonesia, and other peoples of Southeast Asia. This series of books looks at their unique blend of cultures through captioned color photographs, archival images, and a detailed text.
