The Peranakan Museum A-Z Guide

This guide to the Peranakan Museum features over a hundred fully illustrated entries written by the museum's curators, independent academics and researchers.

It provides the reader with glimpses into the lifestyle of the Peranakan Chinese community, in all its facets and expressions.

These include everyday household objects, distinctive crafts such as beadwork and embroidery, colourful porcelain, textiles, jewellery and the fine gilded furniture that graced the homes of the wealthier Peranakans.

Intangible aspects of the culture such as language and poetic forms are explored as well.
