Chinese Silk Sellers in Indonesia

Chinese silk merchants plying their wares to the household staff of a European family in the old Batavia. These type of door-to-door, direct-selling merchants were very common in port cities and somewhere like Batavia would have access to an immense number of fine goods including these silks. While the Europeans of the house were away, the baboes or female servants were usually responsible for interacting with traveling salesmen.
