Trades of Penang II

Trades of Penang – the Chinese stamp carver and calligrapher

Mr Ng opened his store in 1967, upon his return from Hong Kong, where he learned the traditional art of carving signature stamps. Businessmen, merchants and artists still use them.
Mr Ng imports the stones from Fujian, China, as the local stones are much harder and more difficult to carve.
