Book Launch & Presentation
Peranakan Chinese bed ornaments include bolster and pillow ends, curtain hooks and hanging ornaments. They were usually used to adorn nuptial beds. They contain auspicious motifs which were influenced heavily by Chinese culture. Today, these pieces are highly sought after by collectors as they are difficult to come by.
Come and discover these unique and intricate pieces of antiques with author Nelson Lim, as he shares his insights on his collections and the significance of their motifs.
Visit the "Gilded Dreams" Exhibition to take a closer look at Peranakan Chinese silver pillow and bolster ends. The exhibition will be on display at the library@esplanade from 2 November - 30 December 2015.
