A great many of the exhibits hail from renowned ceramic-making centres in the southern region such as Cay Mai, Bien Hoa, Thanh Le and Lai Thieu. They date back to the late 19th century and the early 20th century.

Another 100 objects are said to have been created at different periods of time in Viet Nam’s history, from the Dong Son civilisation (about 2,000 – 2,500 years ago) to the dynasties of Ly, Tran, Le So, Mac, Le Trung Hung and Nguyen – the last dynasty.

The display, opened on May 8, has been organised by Nguyen Thi Thu Hoa from Ha Noi and 62 other private collectors from across Viet Nam.

The exhibition will run until May 15.
