These are decorated silver plates which are sewn onto both ends of a bolster ( bantal peluk). These are typical Malaysia or Singapore origin.
In Malay and Peranakan Chinese weddings, the bridal bed is decorated including pillows and bolsters. For a royal wedding, gold plates are used instead.
These silver plates are Peranakan Chinese origin. This is due to the fact that there are engravings of birds among the floral & foliate motives. Malay plates normally do not have any animal engravings due to the Islamic tradition.
