Tiffin carriers were a traditional form of transporting food in Malaysia and around the region. An old school lunch box. This one is made of metal and enamel paint and were used by the Peranakans. Sometimes there are peonies painted on the Tiffin carrier as decoration. This is a plain one but I have added in the peonies in the background 🙂
