There are two distinct traditions of silverwork in Malaysia: that of the indigenous Malay craftsman who worked under royal patronage, and that of immigrant Chinese silversmiths from Southern China whose products were used by the prosperous, long-established Malaysian Chinese families. This book, first published in 1910, is copiously illustrated with over 250 examples of Malay and Chinese silverwork of a quality rarely found these days outside museums and private collections. This new edition includes a lengthy introduction by Sylvia Fraser-Lu, the author of Silverware of South-East Asia (OUP, 1989).
