Why this is a
Masterpiece

This is the biggest ceramic vase amid the rare and precious objects kept at the National Museum of Vietnamese History after the shipwreck-excavation in the Cu Lao Cham Sea. On this vase we can see a high artistic level in the technique as much as in the motif. Classical subjects such as floral and birds gave way to a more natural environment and daily life being painted with full liberty and creativity. It also gives us a deeper understanding of the beauty of the country and the life of the Vietnamese people in a developed society under the reign of the Le in its beginning stage. The Great Viet of the 15th century was a powerful nation in South East Asia.

History of the Object
This object was excavated in 1999 from the Cu Lao Cham shipwreck. Most of the ceramics on the ship were from the Chu Dau kilns (Chu Dau village, Hai Duong Province) and were produced in the 15th century. Chu Dau was a great centre of ceramic production in Vietnam. It came into being in the 14th century and developed to higher quality in the 15th and 16th centuries when Vietnam's foreign trade reached a peak. Most of the export was by sea.
