It is used for fermenting all sorts of things. Also used as a punch bowl during Chinese New Year and for many other purposes, kamcheng is ubiquitous in Peranakan culture.This kamcheng belongs to a class of Chinese export porcelain made for Peranakan buyers of Southeast Asia. Called nyonyaware, it is distinctive for its bright pastel colours, profusion of decoration, and preferred motifs of peony and phoenix. This kamcheng which is large was usually used to store or serve food. The knob on the cover takes the form of a lion-dog, and the interior is decorated with parakeet among flowers. “娘惹瓷”特指19世纪末20世纪初晚清民国时期,马六甲海峡的峇峇人(主要是马六甲、槟榔屿、新加坡三地)订制、由景德镇生产、专用 于其族使用的一种装饰华丽的粉彩瓷器。它们是旧时的娘惹峇峇平日用的和隆重仪式上不可缺少的重要角色,在娘惹峇峇的生活中,瓷器已 经不仅仅是一件器具,而是可以把握和触及的那个遥远的“故国”的脉络。主题纹饰多为凤凰、牡丹,而很少出现中国本土常用的山水和人 物。 盖盅”Kamcheng”用闽南话发音是“感情”的谐音。峇峇娘惹结婚时有一个习俗,新郎会準备「盖盅」盛红白汤圆,并与新娘一起吃下,表 示彼此接受了这段婚姻。以“盖盅甜蜜蜜”之意,盖中内盛入大小汤圆黏在一起的概念,寓意人“和”人相处和谐融洽的情感。娘惹瓷经典 色彩,缅怀峇峇娘惹文化的浪漫情怀,透过嫣红的牡丹、五彩的凤凰及盘旋缠绕在碧绿艳粉的底子上无疑展露着“娘惹瓷”的美感。
