Exhibition of antique wine-drinking containers in Hanoi

Nearly 800 precious bronze and terracotta antiques have been selected from the collections of members of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) antique preservation club.

The history of Vietnamese wine culture is reflected in the hundreds of tumblers, jugs, decanters, wine brewing pots and jars.

Items on display in the exhibition date from the Dong Son era (2,000-2,800 years ago) up to the Nguyen dynasty, with many exotic pieces coming from the latter era.
