DETAILSQua presents the CNY Goodie / Tidbits Box from the Peranakan collection. This collection showcases the rich heritage of Peranakan culture, bringing back memories of the past with the bright and colourful tiles incorporated into the product.
The early Peranakans adopted a practice of incorporating expensive decorative ceramic tiles into the interior and exterior of their houses. These decorative tiles, usually in floral motifs, added both pastel and vibrant colours into their Victorian-style houses that reflect the East meets West blend of the Straits Chinese. With the march of time and modernization in Singapore, the production of these tiles in Singapore slowly diminished.
This original Peranakan Collection aims to preserve and present the finest appreciation of these classical motifs. Combining with the lustre of lacquer, the Peranakan Collection is the first in the world that blends the Straits Chinese decorative tiles into a single uniquely-crafted piece.
