Update: September, 05/2014 - 08:34

AN GIANG (VNS) — Over 600 ceramic objects made in the old southern style dating back to the end of 19th century are on display at the provincial museum in the southern province of An Giang.

The objects include various ceramic genres such as Cay Mai, Old Sai Gon, Lai Thieu and Bien Hoa.

Cay Mai ceramics are dedicated to Buddhism, while Sai Gon and Lai Thieu cover daily utensils glazed in blue and decorated with vivid decorative patterns of trees, flowers and animals.

Bien Hoa ceramics have a more colourful glaze. Products of this genre were awarded gold medals at international fairs in Paris in 1925 and 1932.

The exhibition will run until October 29. — VNS
