Discovering that many hand-crafted vintage and modern brass pieces – trays, door-knockers, candelabras, ice-buckets, umbrella stands – can be sourced in Hong Kong turns out to be heavy work. You’re about to head home and you end up with two or more tailored, glamorous pieces under your arm. For a unique collection take a look at designer Debra Little’s Deem, her lifestyle boutique that combines furniture, accessories and one-off furnishings at 252 Hollywood Road, Sheung Wan, +852 2540 2011, Here you will find white and gold brass trays in a variety of sizes and her single candle holders with a second usage as vases are exquisite.


































































A short walk from Deem along Hollywood Road to the beginning of Cat Street will lead you down some stairs to Chui Kee Brass Work, G/F 23 Tung Street (Cat Street) +852 2543 1176. There is serious craftsmanship here and made-to-order pieces are available. The store also provides a privileged viewing position – some days it’s possible to see the process in the work by watching artists melding and moulding inside the store. Door knockers shaped into regal lions are available in various sizes. But their sweet little brass bowls and a handful of picture hooks never take up too much room.
