Peranakan Tiles Gallery at 36 Temple Street - Chinatown

Peranakan Tiles Gallery at 36 Temple Street - Chinatown There is no such thing as impossible; it's always possible with passion. In the early part of the 20th century, glazed tiles popularly known as decorative wall Tiles across the world found favor with the affluent Peranakan community of Singapore.

The Peranakans decorated their houses, furniture and other surfaces with these colorful tiles. soon enough, these tiles became a distinctive feature of this community and they began to be referred to as Peranakan tiles.

Must Share : 文章寫的非常好,有些内容还需要侍考证, 我想提出来. 不要骂我好吗?我只是分享給大家🙏

1。 不是全部的花磗稱马約利卡磚,因为錫釉是馬約利卡的英文名稱,如果没上錫釉的磚就不可稱馬約利卡.

2. 文章提到日本在明治维新後開始仿製,为何不可是全世界仿造日本呢?

3. 日本花磚从明治20年(1882 年) 至大正年(1935 年) 已開始生產了湿式磚(没烧)后面变成乾式(大概1915) 至第二大戰前后.

4. 在1384年中當穆斯林征服伊比利亜半島時,中東信徒把除了上帝,没有征服者的釉下彩磚帶入伊比利亜半島, 就是当今的西班牙,葡萄牙,安道尔及小部分的法国. 所以我的分析是中東進入歐州,而不是歐州是發源地。

5. 新加坡有3700 間列入國家级保護而不是四,五百間.

6. 新加坡政府没有積極申请世界文化遗产,因为这些花彩磚不属于新加坡製造,所以不合格申請,所以申请者只有透過法国大学一起申请世界文化遗产。 还是台湾好, 政府有支持

7。 瓷磚迷宫我很喜欢,因为可以学习英语

以上7点,只是我個人意见, 没有别意,只是想跟大家分享彩磚的故事 🙂 🙂

Please don’t repeat on asking me “What is Peranakan Tile”, “Why was called Peranakan Tiles”, “Why it’s was so expensive” … Please go & read on the last page of my book, you will find the answer. Everyone has different perspectives, there is nothing right or wrong, it all depends on how you look at it….. Cheers. As a collector cm dealer, my views of antique tile’s market prices are based on the fundamental economic rules which are “Demand and Supply”. If no demand, no value. If its high demand and no supply, definitely the price will go up. FYI – There are so many On-line sales & Auction company are auctioning these antique tiles (Some old & Some new, you should check & re-check carefully before purchase), fortunately, that this trend presently have not flown too fast to South East Asia, so the prices here are still low, compare to Europe & America. Concurrently, I’m working on a mission to educate people on this precious “Peranakan Antique Tile” a fragile legacy, that needs to be conserved for the generations to come, believe it or not within the next few years, these antique tiles will/after become recognized as intangible heritage by UNESCO. (We are working on the submission since 2016). My prediction by that time the demand for antique will be very high and the price will be definitely increased. Same as the Stock Broker forecast will advise you to buy and keep .... hahahhaha :)
Peranakan Tiles Gallery & Victor wish everyone a blessed Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2019, may this festival bring Peace & Joy to you and your family.
