Drawing inspiration from the rich Peranakan history, Rumah Bebe creates quality replicas of museum pieces as contemporary functional gifts, designed to enhance the visitors’ experience by enabling them to take home “a piece of timeless Peranakan
artwork. An array of Peranakan-themed merchandise, original or replicated, such as porcelain ware, handmade works of art, exquisite silver-ware, jewellery, batik-textiles and memorabilia is available to inspire, educate and excite shoppers of all ages.
HERITAGE PORCELAIN COLLECTION
These porcelain collection are made by artisans in China. Peranakan flavoured motifs of phoenix and peonies in hues of turquoise, olive green and fuchsia are commonly found on these porcelain items. This combination distinguishes Peranakan porcelain significantly from the deep orange “iron” red colours with dragon motifs of contemporary Chinese porcelain.
