HCM CITY (Biz Hub) – Binh Duong-based porcelain manufacturer Minh Long I has launched new ceramic ware aimed at meeting customers' decorative needs during Lunar New Year (Tet).

They include the Sac Xuan (Spring Charm) dinner set, coloured Mini Kirin statues and the Sen Vang tea set.

Spring Charm dinner set

With its images of peach and apricot blossoms (on bowls and dishes), the dinner set evokes the influence of Earth and Heaven on Spring as well as the reunion and enhancement of close family ties.

Peach and apricot blossoms represent Vietnamese cultural beauty. The southern apricot blossoms symbolise good fortune while the northern peach blossoms are believed to be able to expel demons and usher in safety and happiness.

"Seeing peach and apricot blossoms, one can say that Tet and the reunion are coming," Minh Long I told customers about the Spring Charm dinner set.

The coloured Mini Kirin statues

One of four supernatural creatures venerated in East Asia, Kirin is believed to drive away evil and bring good. The 20cm, 1.1kg Kirin statues are available in yellow, white, green, blue, red, orange, brown, and black to meet customers' demands.

The coloured Kirins, with a pearl in their mouth and wearing lucky coins, are considered icons of a peaceful and prosperous Viet Nam and safety and happiness for Vietnamese families.

The Sen Vang (Golden Lotus) tea set

With lotus bulbs stretching into the air beside lotus blossoms, the small-sized Sen Vang (Golden Lotus) tea sets have both traditional and modern beauty at the same time.

One can admire the aesthetics while tasting fine tea and enjoying the pleasure of unions during TET.

45th birthday

Forty five years after its establishment, Minh Long I has a presence throughout Viet Nam. Minh Long I products are also exported to many foreign markets like Germany, France, Japan, the Netherlands, the Czech Republic, and the US.

In the 1970s Minh Long I Enterprise manufactured porcelain items like figurines, souvenirs, tea sets and dinner sets.

When it became a limited liability company, the company's chiefs invested in modern equipment and production lines imported from Germany, Japan and other developed countries to make high-quality products.

With its new technologies, the company has been manufacturing first-class products like Hoang Cung (Royal Palace) dinner sets and Hon Viet (Vietnamese Spirits) and Son Ha Cam Tu (Beautiful Mountains and Rivers) tea sets.

At the ceremony held to celebrate the 45th anniversary of the company in January 2016, Ly Ngoc Minh, chairman of Minh Long I Co Ltd., said, "Our products have been proudly chosen by the Party and the Government to be given as national souvenirs to heads of states at top-level conferences and meetings such as APEC and ASEAN summits, and used a cultural icons at important events like the 1,000 years of Thang Long."

"Vietnamese are honoured that their porcelain products are as competitive as any other worldwide."

Tran Thanh Liem, chairman of the Binh Duong Province People's Committee, said: "Minh Long I has taken great efforts to develop its brand names and expand markets for its products.

"Its stable and profitable operations have helped contribute significantly to the State coffers and create jobs for nearly 3,000 local workers."
