To celebrate the occasion of Tet (Lunar New Year), an interesting exhibition featuring antique wine-drinking containers will be held in Ha Noi on February 12.
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.
The exhibition is co-organized by the management board of the relic of the Co Loa ancient citadel and the UNESCO antique preservation club.
In related news, an exhibition of wine glasses from the modern age called “Flower and Wine” will open in the Van Ho Culture and Art Exhibition Hall on February 9.
