Gold Coin Thermos Flasks
Evelyn Char has sent the following information: A few family members have worked for Gold Coin thermal flasks, which was a competitor of the more famous Camel back in the days. The factory used to be located on Sheung Heung Road, To Kwa Wan. The manufacturer was I-Feng Enamelling Company and Freezinhot Bottle Co. Ltd.
In fact its development and move to HK was intricately linked to modern Chinese history… For example the boom of Chinese-made enamel products was largely a result of anti-foreign sentiments in the 20s (which meant that Chinese people preferred buying Chinese goods), and I-Feng set up its factories in HK because of the destruction of its factories in Shanghai & Guangzhou in the late 30s.
