This 1968 photograph depicts some decorative mosaic tiles featuring tiles painted with a peacock and a pink flower. These cen be seen on the wall of a Telok Ayer Street temple. These tiles (often from Staffordshire kilns) were once commonly used in Peranakan-styled houses and were mass produced by dust pressing, in which powdered clay was pressed into a mould with great force. Title devised by Library staff.
