As I sit in a cozy corner of Ying Kee Hong on a Qing dynasty Blackwood lazy chair, surrounded by the beautiful antiques and artifacts that I grew up with which my grandfather sourced from all over China, I can’t help but feel a sense of pride and admiration for the man who started it all: my grandpa, Mr Loh Wang Kee.
While we open our doors to the public for one last time, we are reminded of the words of my grandfather, who once said, “Antiques are not just objects, they are a connection to our past and a window to our culture. They remind us of our roots and the legacy that we inherit from our ancestors.“
We hope that our collection of antiques will serve as a reminder of the rich history and culture of China, and inspire others to appreciate and preserve these treasures for future generations.
Below, we hope to share the story of Ying Kee Hong’s history with you.
