Indonesian silver gilt plaques -from a costume?

Standard

These are a puzzle. They were bought as part of a lot of Indonesian metalware in The Netherlands about 20 years ago. They are now in the collection of Anthony J Sargeant but are unidentified as to their origin and function but they do seem to have small holes around the edges as if they were made to be sewn onto a costume? Any suggestions would be appreciated. They measure 20cm by 8cm.
