Straits Chinese Gold Jewellery:
The Private Collection of Peter Soon
This book showcases the rich collection of jewellery of the owner of the Pinang Peranakan Mansion, a museum dedicated to the culture of the descendants of Chinese immigrants who married Malays and settled in the Malay archipelago from 200 BC onwards. Being of mixed race themselves, they tended to be more open than others to the cultural influences that swirled around them. So the jewellery and culture described here exhibits traces of Chinese, Malay and European influences. 168 pages. .
