Online Auction Description
Malaysia 2013 S#1479-1481 The Baba & Nyonya Heritage setenant set and miniature sheet. The miniature sheet has special laser die-cut, have holes in sheet. Mint Never Hinged (MNH). Post Office fresh in excellent condition!

Baba (men) and Nyonya (women) are terms used for the descendants of late 15th to 19th-century Chinese immigrants to the Malay Archipelago. They were partially assimilated into Malay culture, especially in food, dress, and language used, while retaining some of the Chinese traditions and culture like religion, name, folk medicine, and festival celebrations, thereby creating a new mixed culture.

The setenant set features the Nyonyaware, beaded slippers, a typical Baba Nyonya townhouse, and wedding costume.

Nyonyaware is characterised by its decorative motifs and the most vivid and colourful familiar rose enamels. The stamp features a covered jar call "kamcheng" - variously used as a container for water, pickles and other types of food. Also featured are ceramic spoons, plate, and cups with phoenix and peonies - a symbol of prosperity ad good fortune.

The beaded slipper is opne of the most popular Nyonya object still found today. The technique of making such footwear is also one of the few crafts left over from the golden age of Baba & Nyonya. The popular motifs used for the patterns were flowers, birds, butterflies, and fruits.

The typical Baba Nyonya townhouse features Neoclassical pediments, pillars and stucco decorations over windows. House fronts are usually heavily decorated with brightly coloured hand-painted tiles and Chinese characters painted in gold on large backgrounds.

The wedding costume is colourful and elaborate. The headdress worn by the bride is made out of more than a hundred gold and silver hair pins that are put into the hair to form a crown. On her chest and wrists she wears numerous jewelry and accessories. The costumes are made from damask silk and either couched with gold thread or covered with coloured thread embroidery.

The miniature sheet features Nyonya Kebaya (a traditional blouse-dress combination). It first appeared only in the early 20th century. While the early Kebayas are hand sewn, the Nyonya Kebaya today is embroidered using sewing machine with flower motives being the favorite theme. This miniature sheet features a Nyonya Kebaya which won the UNESCO Award of Excellence for Handicraft 2012, showing a composition of Malaysian fruit motifs.
