After a nearly 50-year restoration, the Vietnam Historical Museum will display a collection of the Nguyen Kingdom’s treasures.

The collection will open on Saturday (October 9) and includes three seals, two swords, two caps and two tea-sets. The items were cast in 1806 out of gold during the dynasty of King Minh Mang. Experts have lauded the quality of these skillfully crafted objects, which were often used by the Nguyen kings.
