Royal Selangor PewterA lovely selection of quality pewter Christening gifts from the prestigious manufacturer Royal Selangor. As one of the largest names in pewter gifts, Royal Selangor have a superb collection for babies and children.
The birth of the company today known as Royal Selangor officially started in 1885 in Kuala Lumpur by an enterprising young pewter smith named Yong Koon. Attracted by the discovery of tin in the town, Yong Koon joined his brothers in making small household items from tin which was soon to progress through to crafting pewter candle holders and incense burners to be used at the alters of Chinese temples. This was a natural progression as pewter is made up from 85 – 99% tin along with other metals used to harden and toughen the tin foundation.
The company worked hard to evolve the business, using innovative production procedures to constantly improve, there was no hierarchy within the company and each employee was treated like an extended family member, Selangor Pewter was in fact one of the first Malaysian companies to employ women in production.
By the 1970’s the company was exporting pewterware internationally including to the UK, and at the end of this very productive decade for the company, Selangor Pewter received an endorsement from HRH The Sultan of Selangor as his 'Royal Pewterer', however, it wasn’t until 1992 that the name changed to Royal Selangor to reflect its noble status.
Today the company is world-renown for its world quality pewter products which are beautifully packaged and make sublime celebratory keepsakes. Incorporating fairy-tale characters and musical elements in some of their children’s designs, they make excellent gifts for Christenings, births or birthdays and add a touch of heirloom luxury to a child’s nursery. One of our most popular items is the Musical Carousel from the Teddy Bear’s Picnic range, beautifully cast and engraved, this elegant piece features Teddy reading to his woodland friends, when the base is turned, he revolves gently and plays Hush Little Baby.
