Spotted recently in Penang, a collector's treasure trove of antique Malaysian kitchen paraphenalia.
Absolutely stunning photos, love this post to death... where did you say you spotted all this stuff? Vida x
Ooops a little far to go for me today! Vida x
G'day Sticky-Is this stuff you have hoarded & are about to open a Malay Homewares stall? LOL! Seriously, lovely pictures, are all the accoutrements old?
Yes all old, Gobbler, lovely and weathered, on display to tourists interested in the kitchens of a wealthy family. I can image the toil of the servants as they turned out dishes in the huge kitchen space that these items were displayed in.
I would have killed for some of those goodies though. Oh to have a large flat mortar and pestle and some of those pretty stacked lunch caddies or tiffins.
