World Class Heritage
What started as a simple ancestral altar ornaments company now blossoms into a well established, and internationally acclaimed jewelry empire.
Royal Selangor Pewter Background
The Royal Selangor humble beginning started around 1890s and it began as a tiny enterprise, building altars for the migrant Chinese.
30 – 40s years later, it morphed into making collectables for the British.
During the Japanese occupation, the company made sake bottles for the Japanese military.
After the Malayan independence, the company continues with pewter and was the first Malaysian company that embarked on making European styled jewelry.
In 1989 and 1993, the company bought over 2 London pewter and silver companies.
It is now considered one of the largest pewter company in the world.
Its products are not only sold in Malaysia but also in exclusive stores all over the world ( such as in the Harrods, London).
The name Royal Selangor Pewter is now changed to only Royal Selangor as its product range had expanded to include items from other materials.
