The Silver Container from Malaysia, One of the Featured Heritage Collections of the ACHDA E-Exhibition
The production of metal objects requires sophisticated skills, technology, and extended time. High-quality items made of metal, such as crowns, accoutrements, and bells, are historically valued as prestige objects.
This silver container from Malaysia is one of the featured heritage collections of the “Forging History: Metals in the Crucible of ASEAN’s Transformation” e-exhibition. It is used to store jewellery and other valuable items.
