A Silver Pair

A silver or more likely pewter container with intricate engraving in the background and a jug in the foreground.

 

These are some of the artefacts (probably used by Chinese immigrants) found in the Fuk Tak Chi Museum at Far East Square, Singapore (Telok Ayer Street) - this small street museum (which contains only a square courtyard and a shrine room) was previously the first Chinese temple in Singapore built in the 1820s by Hakka and Cantonese immigrants and was dedicated to Tua Pek Kong (the Earth God, but more commonly considered as the God of Prosperity).
