A display of antiques acquired by the Nguyen Dynasty (1802-1945) through diplomatic exchanges, which drew much attention from the public and experts, was recently held at Hue’s Royal Fine Arts Museum.

The antiques were the presents of China, Japan, Thailand, France, England, Spain, and the US to the Nguyen kings in diplomatic exchanges. They included jars made in Japan in the early 18th century, porcelains from a king of the Qing Dynasty to King Minh Mang (1820-1840), a collection of small cannons from France to King Khai Dinh (1916-1925), a horse cab carrying wine from American merchants to King Bao Dai (1926-1945) and a group of porcelain antiques made in famous kilns in Europe from the French Government to the Nguyen kings.

Moreover, the exhibition also displayed many made-in-France porcelain items ordered by kings of Thanh Thai (1889-1907), Duy Tan (1907-1916) and Khai Dinh. Notably was a set of white-enameled gilt porcelain dishes, which were printed with two Chinese scripts of Dai Nam and ordered by Thanh Thai Dynasty in 1889.
