Ben,

Try to find Hands of Time: The Crafts of Aceh by Barbara Leigh.
ISBN 979 428 110 7
Then there are of course dozens of old articles and books about Aceh but I think she has compiled most of it nicely together in her book.

Probably the amount of golden crowns only shows how rich the owner was?

Maybe you could find something in this article:

De Sikin by P. Vermieren from De Vrienden van het Etnografisch Museum Antwerpen, XIV(2), 2 (1987).

Haven't found it yet myself.
But you are closer to Antwerpen than I am.
Please arrange a copy for me too.

Michael
