Nam Dinh (VNA) – The museum of northern Nam Dinh province on June 30 received 77 valuable antiques.

The antiques include 55 objects donated by Nguyen Thanh Nam, a cultural official in Hanoi’s Thanh Tri district. Among them, two were made of wood from the Le (1418-1789) and Nguyen (1802-1945) dynasties.

The remaining are ceramic products, including those of China dating back from the 16th to the 19th centuries.

Pham Quoc Quan, former director of the National Museum of History, presented 22 antiques to the museum, including five bronze items of the Dong Son, a Bronze Age archaeological culture (700 B.C. – 100 AD).

Nguyen Van Thu, Director of the Nam Dinh museum, said that the antiques will be assessed and then introduced to the public.

In the past decade, the museum has received nearly 1,000 antiques donated by organisations and individuals.-VNA
