Take blue-and-white porcelain for example. In the 14th century, only China and Vietnam were able to burn blue-and-white porcelain in the world, and the footprints of Vietnam’s blue-and-white porcelain were already spread all over China and abroad through trade.Vietnam takes Yuan blue-and-white porcelain as the model, in the Chen Dynasty (a dynasty in Vietnam, the second half of the 14th century), while applying under-glaze color painting technology, while on the ground of half-ceramic tire on the white make-up earth, the production has its own unique style of blue-and-white porcelain.

Since then, China’s exports of porcelain to overseas have fallen sharply due to the maritime ban of Emperor Hongwu of the Ming Dynasty, while China’s blue-and-white porcelain, especially in the Middle East, the Near East and Indonesia, is still popular and in great demand.Vietnam, or as an intermediary, seized on the Ming government’s policy of lifting the ban to produce more artistic blue-and-white porcelain, more effectively promoting exports.

In order to produce replacement of Chinese blue-and-white porcelain, Vietnam continuously improved the technology of the kiln industry, and by the mid-15th century had a prosperous period, and can compete with Chinese blue-and-white porcelain in the Southeast Asian porcelain trade market.Until the 17th century, China’s blue-and-white porcelain became the most important product in Southeast Asia’s blue-and-white porcelain trade market. Under the strong influence and impact of Chinese blue-and-white porcelain, Vietnam’s blue-and-white porcelain gradually lost its competitiveness and finally hid from Southeast Asia’s porcelain trade market.
