Oriental Silverwork 1


MR. LING ROTH, who, in dealing with obscure chapters of anthropology and art, such as Tasmanians or Dayaks, or the brasswork of Benin, has already proved himself a good compiler, has now, in describing Malay and Chinese silver work, found a subject well suited to his powers. Few people, he remarks, have ever heard of Malay silver-work; South Kensington has only half a dozen specimens. The objects illustrated in this volume come from private collections made by officers who have served among the Malays, Messrs. Cecil and Leonard Wray, W. A. Luning, and Dr. C. Hose.
