Peranakan Carving

These beautiful carving are used to adorn our ancestor's Peranakan wedding beds. They have been extracted from the “red-and-gold” furniture, that was usually made of 楠木, from our early ancestor beds that are lacquered in red, black, and even gold.

Some are left down from our ancestors while others were collected over the years.  These carvings are painstakingly handcrafted and restored to their original glory. Its motifs depict fertility, auspicious, phoenix, peonies, and even the Eight Immortals in Chinese folklore.
