Indonesian Yogya (Djokja) Silverware from C. 1900-1930s.
The manufacture of silverware known as Yogya Silver finds its origin in the second quarter of the XXth century when a profound transformation was supported by the conjoined efforts of Dutch and Javanese promoters of decorative crafts.
In the 30s Java was part of the Dutch East Indies and the center of this production was in the provincial capital Yogyakarta (Yogya) and in Kotagede, a small town about five kilometers southeast.
The production of Yogya Silver flourished after independence of Indonesia (1949) and continues in present days.
