Peranakan Baba Nyonya are an ethnic group descended from Chinese settlers from the southern provinces who came to the Malay archipelago including British Malaya (now Malaysia and Singapore, where they are also referred to as Baba-Nyonya) Members of this community in Malaysia address themselves as Baba Nyonya. Nyonya is the term for the women and Baba for the men.

Many were the elites of Singapore, more loyal to the British than to China. Most have lived for generations along the straits of Malacca. They were usually traders, the middleman of the British and the Chinese, or the Chinese and Malays, or vice versa because they were mostly English educated. Because of this, they almost always had the ability to speak two or more languages.

In this category we have wide collections of ornaments of this ethnic group. Peranakan baba nyonya ceramics are enjoying a revival in Southeast Asia, particularly Malaysia and Singapore. These peranakan porcelain or ceramic are very gorgeous and has high standard for interior decorations.
