"Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion" Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion - The Blue Mansion Tip by Audrey118

  stained glass
by Audrey118

I am highlighting this art nouveau stained glass. It is not entirely original, many were destroyed but whatever remnants were saved and restored to almost its original. The glass pieces are from US duplicates, and coordinated by a Malay glassworker during the restoration pror\gramme in the last 10 years or so.

I like to take note the designs - it being of pineapple design which is very auspicious to the Chinese - with the sound of pinepapple in chinese almost like prosperous coming - befall to you....
