Love this old typewriter. Pure elegance. This and other items, used to belong to a Peranakan philanthropist and have been donated to the museum.
Was excited when I saw these old telephones. Another station kids will like. Wish I could get a pale pink one but not the press button kind but the authentic dialing type that goes zing when you release it. I loved playing with the phone as a kid. Better than any toy. So sad when the then Telecoms took it away and replaced it with the boring, not so attractive push button. I guess these are just models as the real purpose was the interactive aspect of this station where you could pick up the phone and ‘eavesdrop’ on a Peranakan conversation.
Adore this little beaded purse.
Love this vintage glasses that my dad used to wear as a teen. One of the items donated by the family of the philanthropist.
Women had much smaller feet then.
