Objet D’art

In this diplomatic gift from the Sultan of Johor to the Sultan of Kedah on the occasion of the latter’s coronation, two rock crystal pillars flank a gold gilded disc embossed with the relief of both rulers. Decorating the objet d’art are garlands of Johor’s ubiquitous cash crop, gambier and pepper, as well as ears of maize, a crop long associated with the state of Kedah.
