These plates supposedly come in pair which are sewn onto both ends of a bolster ( bantal peluk). However I only acquired one plate.
In Malay weddings, the bridal bed is decorated including pillows and bolsters. For a royal wedding, gold plates are used instead.
This plate is gold plated and typical Malay origin. This is due to the fact that there are engravings of star and crescent symbolizing Islam among the floral & foliate motives. Malay plates normally do not have any animal engravings due to the Islamic tradition.

This plate was purchased from Jonker Street Malacca. However I noticed there is a punch mark in the middle of the crescent which I couldnt decipher.
