Probably one of the best known retail silversmiths of the latter half of the 19th century in Shanghai - often referred to as being the ‘Wang Hing’ of Shanghai. Like Wang Hing in Canton and Hong Kong, Tuck Chang sold high quality jewelery, silver wares, jade and ivory. While having its own working relationships with Shanghai-based artisan silversmiths helped create a style other than that of Canton and Hong Kong. The large international resident population ensured a brisk trade in trophy silver items. (please see A. Von Ferscht, Chinese Export Silver 1785-1940, 4th edition 2015, page 763).
