Pinang Peranakan MansionPinang Peranakan Mansion

Remember that I did a review on Little Nyonya – the Singapore blockbuster drama serial starring Jeanette Aw as an entrepreneur Nyonya not too long ago? If you are a fan of Little Nyonya (like me!), take a visit to Pinang Peranakan Mansion! Stepping in this place and get the feel like the crews. As I arrived at the entrance, the pale green facade seems familiar. Yes, many scenes in Little Nyonya were made here as Chen’s family house.

Iron gate and balcony with pale green facadeIron gate and balcony with pale green facade

At the gate of this historic mansion, there are a pair of metal crowns to welcome us. The crowns signify the glory of British era in Penang. I was impressed with the grand balcony of a Straits eclectic design. The pillars resembled a European influence whereas the gold colored floral designed iron arts of the balcony looks similar to Malays crafting. This rich Baba home has faithfully stood here since late 19th century and managed through many hands!

Compiling almost everything a typical Peranakan family house used to have, Pinang Peranakan Mansion or formerly known as ‘Hai Kee Chan’ is tucked away in Church Street of the George Town Heritage Zone. This mansion symbolizes the legacies of Peranakan and herald the preservation of one-of-its kind architecture.

Baba Nyonya or Peranakan is a term used to describe the descendants of 15th or 16th century Chinese immigrants to Nusantara during the colonial era. With the current population about 7 million, they are mainly dispersed in the region of Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia. Record stated that the Chinese immigrants back then married the local Malays women and as a result this community is more or less adopting or assimilating into the local cultures especially in their dressing, cooking and language. However, the Peranakans do worship their ancestral and common faiths are Taoism, Mahayana Buddhism or Confucianism. Some younger generations of Peranakan have also embraced Christianity resulted from English education.

Dining chamberDining chamber

At present, this ethnic group is almost reaching the vulnerable stage, whereby modernization does not go hand in hand with Peranakan style of living anymore! In fact, very few Peranakan communities in Penang, Malacca or Singapore do retain their lifestyle and even identity. Nowadays, they are usually mistakenly referred as Malaysian Chinese or Singaporean Chinese instead!

Ancestral HallAncestral Hall

Coming back to Pinang Peranakan Mansion, this building was once served as he residence and office of Kapitan Cina Chung Keng Kwee. The architecture of this building is very unique as it incorporates Chinese carved-wood panels with English floor tiles and Scottish iron-works.

As I strolled inside, there is a square concrete bowl that is overlooking the sky. There is no roof so it is exposed to both rain and sun. With sun, the nearby vicinity is brighten under natural light. And as rain pouring, it works to trap the water and funnel to the underneath drainage.

The wing that is closer to the main road (Church Street) is designed for business discussion among the gentlemen. While the smaller chamber beside is the lady’s room whereby the Nyonyas were playing cherki (card game) and enjoyed eating betel nut.

Of the opposite end, it is the guest dining hall whereby ‘tok panjang‘ is situated. Tok panjang or literally translated as ‘long table’ is used by the Peranakan family to prepare feast for their guests. For English group, the rich Baba would usually prepare a special room with European cutlery, teapot set and dining style.

As I climbed up the lovely wooden stairs, it leads me to the upper floor whereby all the antiques are on displayed. They includes a huge vintage standing camera, brooches (keronsang), hair pins (cucuk sanggul), covered jars (kamcheng), metal belts, gold bracelets and many other woman accessories.

Do not miss to visit some of the chambers that features the traditional bridal room, various vanity tables and sewing room whereby the Nyonya long shirts (baju panjang), embroideries and beaded shoes (kasut manik) are displayed.

That’s not about it. Kitchen is a must in every Peranakan family as all the nyonyas were the culinary experts before marriage. In this mansion, its kitchen is relatively the biggest compares to most Penangites’ kitchen area. From making dishes to desserts, they had every mold and tool to serve the best delicacy!

I personally would not called this place a mansion, it deserves the name as Pinang Peranakan Museum. Each item in this mansion speaks for itself. You have to come and see by yourself this amazing heritage!

The legacy mansion of Baba NyonyaThe legacy mansion of Baba Nyonya


by Dean S. Hartley, Jr.



In order to appreciate Oriental art and artifacts, it is necessary to understand first the relationships which have existed from time immemorial between the various countries of that part of the world. In a very great many instances there is a direct and traceable line of relationship and artistic dependency, while in other cases, each country followed its own unique cultural heritage.

It is inevitable that China, which was called the Middle Kingdom (i.e., the center of all social and cultural excellence) should have been the primary and pervading influence. With its thousands of years of superbly organized civilization; with its common written language which allowed widely different groups to communicate even though their spoken languages were mutually unintelligible; with its profound philosophies and deep respect for scholastic achievement; and with its continued reverence for the past and maintenance of historical records, it could in no way avoid exerting a powerful influence – on Japan, on Korea, on the whole complex of Burma and Southeast Asia, and in fact, indirectly,

 on the then relatively young cultures of Europe. This influence may be discerned by the observant person in many of the artifacts on display here.

Just as surely, however, one should realize that the genuine imprint of the Japanese spirit and people is evident, both in those items which are peculiarly Japanese, and in the adaptations which the Japanese have made of Chinese ideas. This same admonition applies to other countries represented by the items on display. For example, for many centuries, just as French was the recognized language of the educated and cultural persons of the courts of England and mainland Europe, so Chinese was the badge of education and culture in Japan. A truly scholarly person was one who could converse, compose extemporaneously a beautiful poem, or write with his brush in formal Chinese. Even so – and even though Japanese is still written in Kan-ji (literally, “Chinese characters”), the spoken language is truly Japanese – sometimes, however, with alternate pronunciations closely resembling the ancient Chinese. It is the practice, from childhood, of writing/drawing these characters with ink and brush which has led to the distinctive and easily recognized style of painting and decoration in most of the Chinese and Japanese art work.

While Buddhism was “imported” from China around the 5th Century A.D. – and with it, specialists in sculpture, pottery, bronze casting, and many other arts – the Japanese sword (Nippon-To) is completely and uniquely Japanese. One other observation of “relationships” concerns the importance of Korea to this trio of separate cultures. Korea, as a stepping stone between China and Japan, inevitably added some of its own individuality and national character to ideas and methods which passed back and forth between the two larger, more powerful countries. So, although each was influenced by all the others, each still retains its own unique characteristics.

In examining the similarities and dissimilarities, this catalogue will call your attention to several specially designated and numbered items or areas of interest, and will attempt to present some salient points of information about each.

You may find it helpful to refer to the chronological chart in the back of the catalogue in order to clarify the comparative dates of, say, Sung Chinese, Koryo Korean, and Heian Japanese periods. The time actually represented in this show extends from about the Fourth Century A.D. to the present. Even so, a definite continuity can be observed in style and shape. We hope you find the items and display interesting and informative.

Dean S. Hartley






1. Wooden figure of ZAO GONGEN, Kamakura period of Japan (1192-1336 A.D.). Zao Gongen is a deity of the Shinto religion. Shinto, which is a purely Japanese religion based upon the myths of the creation and growth of Japan, coexists in complete harmony with the imported Buddhism, which became popular there in the fifth century A.D. So harmoniously do they exist together that there has been significant cross-transfer of ideas, “heroes”, and in some instances, divinities. There is no thought of conflict in following a Shinto ceremony by attendance at and participation in a Buddhist service. The figure is of wood, with “dry lacquer” applied as a finish. Remnants of colored decoration can still be seen.

2. Japanese armor (GUSOKU), the helmet signed “Yoshimasa,” and dated to about 1535 A.D. (Momoyama Period). This armor, with the closely placed lacing, is probably that of a General Officer or other high ranking official. The armor of lower ranks and foot soldiers (when they wore any) was characterized by much wider spaced lacings. The helmet of 62 separate plates riveted together is a fine example of the most advanced style of armor making. The lacings are employed to fasten together separate steel plates (covered with lacquer to cover sharp edges and prevent rusting) so as to provide the greatest flexibility and light weight. You will notice that the arms and legs are covered with a chain mail not dissimilar to that employed in Europe at about the same time in history. Unlike the heavy plate armor of Europe, however, which immobilized a “grounded” knight, a Japanese warrior could fight very well afoot. The fan is a symbol of authority or command. The silver inlaid iron objects at either side of his feet are stirrups, which date to about 1650 A.D. The sword was, in this case, called a TACHI, and was worn slung at the left side, cutting edge down, as we wear our swords.

3. The Japanese sword has been regarded with the deepest reverence throughout the history of Japan. It is the finest cutting weapon ever devised; it has been called “the soul of the Samurai,” and it is a work of art to which even an Emperor (Go-Toba, ca. 1198) may turn his own physical efforts. The Samurai is the traditional “knight” of the feudal society of ancient Japan. He lived by a code as strict as any known to history, and was ready to pay with his own life (seppuku, commonly known as hara-kiri) for falling short of his duties. While the older style was to carry a TACHI – a sword worn blade edge down at the waist – changing styles of warfare led to the KATANA, worn the scabbard thrust through the sash, cutting edge up. As a mark of distinction,

only Samurai were allowed to wear two swords (a long and a medium), as may be seen in the large scroll (No.4) close by. The longer of this pair dates to about 1394, while the shorter dates to about 1504. Note that the scabbards and mounts are a matching set. Merchants were sometimes allowed to wear a single sword, which was usually much more gaudily decorated (3.A.), and court wear also allowed much richer mounts (3.B.) than these primarily fighting swords.

4. During the period immediately following the opening of Japan in the latter 19th Century and very early 20th Century, it was considered “in” for European and American diplomats to have their sons painted in full Samurai regalia as in this scroll. Notice the manner of wearing the DAI-SHO-TO (Long-Short-Swords).

5. Since the beginning of the Eighth Century (at the latest), the manner of forging swords by hand has followed the same traditional methods. Even at that early date, the Japanese swordsmiths achieved technological mastery of the metallurgy of forging and tempering steel that allowed them to make blades with cutting edges which are equal to the middle range of modern tool steel in hardness and toughness. The two bare blades shown here were made by the same procedures, differing in appearance only by minor shape variations and a different pattern in the edge tempering. As it happens, each of these blades is signed and dated – the top one by YOSHI, dated 1345 A.D., while the bottom is by YASUNORI, dated 1935. The plain wooden scabbard below is for storage, not use, and is called SHIRASAYA (white scabbard).

6. The rough looking iron items shown here were prepared in 1963 by Mr. FUJIMURA KUNITOSHI as examples of the various techniques in forging a sword blade. The method he employed in extracting his iron from sand-iron ore, in purifying it, and in combining portions of different hardness to form a blade to his design were identical with those of his spiritual ancestor – the swordsmith of 705 A.D. Mr. Fujimura was a very famous modern swordsmith, having won many prizes for making swords in the manner of famous smiths of seven hundred years ago. He died in 1966 of a stroke while making a sword in his forge. He was 72 years old.

7. Although swords were the primary weapons, the Japanese warrior – and his wife – had many others to choose from under special circumstances. The blades were all forged in the same manner as sword blades, and were equally well made. This strongly curved blade is called a NAGINATA, and was the primary weapon used by the women of a warrior household in defending their home against attack. When not in use, the scabbard with the clan insignia (MON) is placed over the blade. Note the other shapes – generally called YARI – which were used by men, either afoot or on horseback. The very odd pole with the spikes and “fish-hook” head was used to apprehend fleeing criminals – the fish-hooks to twist into his flowing kimono sleeves, the spikes to prevent him from releasing the hooks. It is called a SODE-GARAMI (sleeve grabber).

7.A. This matchlock gun was developed from one obtained by trading with a Portuguese sailor who landed on the remote small southern island of Tanegashima in 1542 A.D. From that time until Japan was “re-opened” in the 1850’s by Admiral Perry,

 they followed the same pattern and mechanism, not improving or changing as the European and American gunmakers did. This was primarily because of the absolute pre-eminence of the sword as a weapon. This style of gun is called TEPPO.

8. Despite the fairly striking regalia of the young man in the scroll previously discussed at No. 4., Samurai were allowed no personal jewelry or decoration, so that whatever ostentation was permitted was found on the swords. For battle, of course, complete sets of iron mounts were appropriate (No. 3, previously described), but for civilian or social occasions, richer sets of “clothes” (mounts) were permitted. This sword guard (TSUBA) of red copper, and the matching handle to the small utility knife carried in a slot in the scabbard were made by a famous Tsuba-maker named JOI around 1750. Other mounts show various rich designs employed in this single area of Samurai personal decoration.

9. CHA-NO-YU – the Japanese tea ceremony – was originally a monastic custom introduced by Japanese Buddhists who had gone to China to study. The essence of the tea ceremony may be translated by such words as calmness, rusticity, harmonious yet unbalanced beauty. The mood is quiet, contemplative, and rigidly ceremonial. Every move has a specific meaning and importance, and each is dedicated to the achievement of the appropriate feeling of total harmony with one’s world. Since, to a great degree, the Samurai code was based upon other aspects of Buddhist teachings, there is nothing incongruous in a Samurai having participated in a honorable battle in the morning and enjoying the quietness of CHA-NO-YU in the afternoon. It is all a part of the totality of the Samurai world as seen from his own understanding of the teachings of the Buddha. It is for this reason that the tea ceremony items have deliberately been placed near those of the warrior. Generally, the idea of calmness, simplicity, and oneness with the entire world precluded gaudy utensils in the ceremony itself, although occasionally an exception will be made in the case of a very fine item made by a famous potter of tea ceremony items. The utensils are not usually made as sets, since each piece has its own – sometimes historical – personality. Those shown here are:

a. Cha-wan (tea bowl)
b. Mizuzashi (covered water jar)
c. Cha-ire (small covered tea container)
d. Cha-sen (bamboo tea-whisk for stirring)
e. Ken-sui (broad, open waste-water bowl)
f. Cha-saku (bamboo tea ladle)

As you look around, you will see various styles of tea-bowls – some genuinely old Chinese bowls, which the Japanese particularly admired – some from the many kilns which specialized in this type of potting. You will also see incense containers (KO-GO),  incense burners (KO-RO), vases for single flowers or sprays, dishes for small cakes, etc., all used from time to time in various styles of CHA-NO-YU.


10. Rice wine (SAKE) is the favorite alcoholic drink of the Japanese and Chinese. These are some examples of the iron kettle to heat it (it is served hot), the small individual bottles in which it is served, and the very small cups from which it is drunk. It is also drunk from flat lacquer saucers, one of which you see here.

11. China was almost certainly the first country to perfect the manufacture of porcelain. This small bowl of the Western Chin dynasty (265 – 316 A.D.), while in no way impressive of itself, is a precursor of the beautiful celadons of the later Sung dynasty. This ware is called “Old Yueh,” and has one of the earliest controlled color glazes (some Han dynasty ware had a controlled black glaze). The ware itself is porcelainous stoneware, which developed further in the beautiful multicolor T’Ang glazes (notice the later copy of a T’Ang horse, with accurate glaze colors elsewhere in the displays). In later T’Ang periods, a near porcelain was developed, and in the early Sung dynasty, true porcelain was developed. There were several kilns,  which achieved this goal, the wares being such as Ting and Ching Pai. 11.A. is an example of the Ch’ing Pai ware made around the 10th – 13th Centuries. Other Sung dynasty stoneware pieces may be seen here too.

11.B. Concurrent with the Sung dynasty – and extending both earlier and later in Korea – the development of ceramics also proceeded, drawing on native ideas as well as imported Chinese skills and techniques. This bowl is of the Korean Koryo period – around 1150 A.D., and shows Korean adaptation of the Chinese glazes. Other Korean items are arranged with this piece.

12. Developing along lines peculiar to their own cultural preferences, the Koreans produced during the Yi dynasty (1392-1910) a variety of glazes on stoneware and porcelainous articles. This white glazed sake bottle of the middle period of Yi represents a typically Korean rendition, and the one most commonly associated with this period. Other glazes evolved during this period range from refinements of the crackled celadons to opaque cream glazes.



The Chronology Of  development


By the time the police on duty at e KOMRES Solok Helath Clinic , each week holiday to the in-laws house in Padang Panjang to go to church and then to Bukittinggi and it was here for the first time the author met with Datuk Man who gave information about his collection of Chinese ceramics.

(b) ) The discovery of Gold Coins Chinese coins and cash at the site of MajapahitFirst, about found or the presence of gold coins Majapahit that reads the words ‘La ilaha illallah Muhammad Rasulullah’



Coins With Sentence lafadz Tauhid(I have this coin but in copper)My Reviews:In 2009, the Evaluation Team Neo Majapahit Information Center (Neo PIM) discovered human remains at the site Trowulan Majapahit kingdom, one of which is thousands of Chinese ancient currency. Currency bearing Chinese characters, and the number is about 60 thousand pieces.Does this signify that the Majapahit kingdom religion is Confucianism, Taoism, or any religion that originated from China?Or, if Majapahit is a subordinate kingdom (vassal) of the Chinese Empire?Of course not.

Heritage of Chinese coins found in the territory of the kingdom of Majapahit sign of trade relations with China. The traders from China often bring their country currency made of gold, silver or bronze to bring to Majapahit. This is only fair considering the era of gold, silver, or bronze is a commonly used means of payment, anywhere. What differentiates its value is the weight of gold / silver itself. Majapahit itself issued a local currency called Gobog.

I have read about the New world record for Ming vase
from China Daily newspaper Updated: 2006-05-31 05:52 HONG KONG: about A rare underglaze copper-red Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) vase sold for HK$78.52 million (US$10.13 million) in Hong Kong yesterday, setting a world auction record for Ming porcelain. 

Theow Tow, Deputy Chairman of Christie’s Asia and the Americas International Director of Chinese works of Arts, looks at an early Ming underglaze copper-red vase after it was sold for a world record of US$10,122,558 for any Ming porcelain during an auction in Hong Kong May 30, 2006. [Reuters]
“He’s bought the vase at the right price, making a world record,” said Edward Dolman, chief executive officer of Christie’s International, referring to buyer Steve Wynn, chairman of Macao-based Wynn Resorts.

The pear-shaped vase, decorated with a peony scroll, is the only copper-red vase of the early Ming Dynasty still in perfect condition to be offered at auction in more than 15 years, said Christie’s Hong Kong office.

The vase was originally inherited by a Scottish couple who used it as a lamp and did not realize its value until they saw a similar example in a museum.

Ceramics with underglaze copper-red decoration are very rare, owing to their complicated production process.
