Peranakan Silver Gilt Curtain Hooks

The curtain hooks are used to draw the front drapes of the Peranakan wedding bed. The phoenix represents good luck and abundance while flowers symbolize fertility, fortune and peace. Both are auspicious and recurrent motifs found on objects commissioned for a Peranakan Chinese wedding.

Length : 31cm each

Do check on my previous post of another pair of silver gilt curtain hooks.
