Sum Ngai Brass Ware Manufacturing Company Limited originally started in Shanghai, China by Tong Shu Lun. After the Japanese war, he emigrated and moved his business to Hong Kong, which was a British Colony at the time. The Hong Kong business supplied items to high-end antique stores on Hollywood Road in the Central District on Hong Kong Island. The uniqueness and quality of the products were quickly noticed and soon after, the company started supplying badges and souvenir items to the Military of different countries stationed in Hong Kong, specifically the British Military. Other notable customers included Consulates of different countries including the United States, The Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank, churches, international hotels, American women’s association and local Hong Kong Government agencies such as the Royal Hong Kong Police.

In the early days, all the manufacturing was done on the premises whereas today, current production takes place in Shenzhen, China. Since all the original tools and molds have been transferred to China, the quality of the product remains unchanged. The showroom remains in Hong Kong at the address shown. The business is currently run by his daughter-in-law Lisa Tong and managed by his grandson Jimmy.

Aside from the popular badges, the 30,000 sq-ft site which is surrounded by a wall, houses over 1,000+ items ranging from ice buckets, Christmas decorations, cloisonne receptacles and replicas of Chinese artifacts to lamps, candle holders and home/garden decor. All items, needless to say, are made of high quality brass.

Sum Ngai Brassware's current clientele also includes busloads of tourists on shopping tours. It is not uncommon to have 2-3 buses at one time at the store. The last Governor of Hong Kong, Christopher Patton as well as Charles, the Prince of Wales (via his assistants) have purchased items from the showroom.

Business hours are daily from 10am to 6pm. There is adequate parking inside the site and a sitting area is available for use. The showroom is conveniently located across from the Kam Sheung Road West Rail station. It takes approximately 30 minutes from Tsim Sha Tsui or Central by public transit.

Hope to see you in the near future.
