Seven Silver-Gilt Key Holders
Peranakan Chinese Community, Java, Indonesia
circa 1920
length: each is approx. 8 cm
Keys are suspended from the rings of each of these key holders which are then designed to hook over a belt. They were worn by male members of Java’s
peranakan Chinese community – local Chinese who were more assimilated than more recent arrivals.
Each key holder has been fabricated by a local Chinese silversmith in silver with many small pieces of silver soldered onto the front to form designs traditional
to Chinese tastes – fish, humming birds, the Immortals, and so on. This sort of applique work is typical of peranakan Chinese silver work.
Each pieces is stamped ‘Java’ on the reverse.

Unusual, Large Courtly Belt Buckle
Central Java, Indonesia
19th century
width: 8.2cm, height: 9cm
This large, showy buckle is after the European style. It features twenty large
faceted glass or paste ‘stones’ mounted in box settings alongside applied
faceted silver granules, interspersed with applied gold or silver-gilt chased
fronds.
The sides of the buckles are covered in high-grade silver over the iron base.
The top of the buckle is etched with Javanese lettering.
Buckles such as these are associated with the 19th century kratons (courts) of
central Java, particularly Surakarta (Solo). They were part of court dress for
male courtiers.
The use of Javanese script began to die out from the nineteenth century due to
Dutch colonial influence. Today, relatively few Javanese can read it, mostly they
are scholars. (MB)
