This whole set is in fact illustrated with items from the Peranakan Museum Collection. The word Peranakan means 'local born' in Malay. It refers to the Peranakan Chinese as well as other Peranakan communities which developed in South-east Asia. Peranakans are known for the beauty of their crafted furniture, jewellery, embroidery, beadwork, textiles, garments and porcelain. The Peranakan Museum houses the best collection of Peranakan artefacts in the world.
The four first stamps of the set picture details of embroidered items. The four other pictures details of porcelain work.
It gives a very colourful and attractive stamps set. But I wonder if a beaded stamp really answers to the postal need ;-) ? After the scented stamps, the stamps in wood, in metal, in plastic, the embroidered stamps, the moving stamps, now the stamp with beads. What will be next ?
