Wang Hing c.1890 was a maker and retailer of top quality Chinese export silver. The company was patronised by Tiffany's, Indian Maharajas, and other notables. It had retail premises between 1875 and 1925 at 10 Queen's Road, Hong Kong. Another outlet was at 1 Sai Hing Street, Guangzhou (Canton) in 1919. The company enjoyed an excellent reputation and was a supplier to Tiffany & Co.  

Prunus blossoms were and are highly prized in Chinese culture. The ancient Chinese believed the peach to possess more vitality than any other tree because their blossoms appear before leaves sprout. When early rulers of China visited their territories, they were preceded by sorcerers armed with peach rods to protect them from spectral evils.

On New Year's Eve, local magistrates would cut peach wood branches and place them over their doors to protect against evil influences.
