Straits Chinese Family - 1900

Straits Chinese Family - 1900

Offering Box (Chanab) Straits Chinese, late 19th century height (open): 33cm, height (closed): 23cm, length: 37cm Chanabs were carved in northern Guangdong and exported to Chinese communities in Southeast Asia where they were placed in the centre of each Straits Chinese family’s sam kai altar. Called a beet-chien in Penang and a chien-arb or chanab in Malacca and Singapore, offerings of crystallised papaya were placed on top it for the God of Heaven. Probably brought to the UK as a keepsake.
