The Royal Selangor story begins in 1885 with a young pewtersmith named Yong Koon.
Today, the brand has grown from a cottage industry to a global brand. This fourth-generation family business has employees spanning the globe, from Kuala Lumpur and Singapore to Shanghai, London, Toronto, Melbourne, Hong Kong and Tokyo.
With over 250 skilled craftspeople and a 40-strong in-house design team, we have expanded the uses of pewter, exploring its many possibilities from children’s gifts and wine accessories to personal accessories such as cufflinks and flashdrives. Since 1885, our designers and craftsmen have expressed their love and understanding of the material by continuously pushing the envelope in pewter design while staying true to our heritage of craftsmanship. Our collection is further augmented by special designs by international designers such as Erik Magnussen from Denmark and Freeman Lau from Hong Kong.
Royal Selangor is also recognised for creating customised designs. Leading luxury company LVMH commissioned Royal Selangor to produce champagne accessories for brands such as Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin, Dom Perignon and Krug. In
the sports arena, we are proud to have created spectacular trophies for the Formula One races in Malaysia, Singapore
and China, Shanghai ATP 1000 Masters and the Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia Golf Tournament.
Today, the Royal Selangor group is a diversified enterprise. Complementing its pewter brand are two luxury names – fine jewellery brand, Selberan, and 350-year-old sterling silver brand, Comyns.
Royal Selangor has grown from a small family-run business to one of the best known pewter brands. It is little wonder
that it has played host to several prominent figures, which include former US President Bill Clinton, lifestyle guru
Martha Stewart, actor Mel Gibson and Managing Director of International Monetary Fund Christine Lagarde.
