Bat Dan street- Hanoi

Bat Dan street is that the cultural values of ancient traditions seem only to be reminded, to keep the roof over the family name and the ancient city located inside a humble little corner.

 Bat Dan street has 248m long, linking Phung Hung street to Hang Bo street. Bat Dan today is belong to two wards: Cua Dong and Hang Bo, Hoan Kiem District, Hanoi.

Under French colonial period, the street was called Hang Chen (Rue Vieille des tasses). Here is the original part of the village’s land and Tan Khai Noi, are under continual review (later renamed the U.S. Thuan), old Tho Xuong district.

Bat Dan Street formerly divided into two sections: the section of land Tan Khai village was built around 1920. At the top of the city, adjacent to the city of Phung Hung and Duong Thanh is the land of the former East elementary school.

Human Affairs Section of rural land, there is an ancient city, which sells all kinds of bowls, plates, kettle, cups, jars, jars, bud vases conductivity (  pottery ), so the name Bat Dan today. That furniture business is largely native men in two villages Phuong Duc and Dong Guan (Phu Xuyen district, Ha Tay, now part of Hanoi).

Where ceramics are known throughout the land of Thang Long periods. These types of bowls, plates, and jars are people selling Bat Dan Street purchased from Bat Trang and Phu Lang brought across the Red River of the sale. Products placed pottery handmade sifted, feat. Bat Trang Village using white clay Phu Lang village also uses red clay.

However, both types of land being used for pottery and ceramics are the kind of special, highly flexible. Obtaining the land, workers exposed to the soil, mixing the soil once, beating the pellets with the big toe and then to “suck” the water, then obliquely rounded, heavy soil to puree until smooth like a new spring pieces only. A piece of land before broaching to hit you, get up to ten times more newly delineated for production turntable manipulation.

Artisan pottery also depends on the size, the texture of the business Bat Dan Street Prepared requirement that land with different proportions to create appropriate products. Therefore, the quality and the floral motifs on the ceramics in Bat Dan Street is old people land cycle is very popular.

Forum shop often simple: often expressed by the people on the ground, the wall is much more price floor presentation vase, bow tie each rope, ceramic warmer.

Later, due to convenient trade, more trade Bat Dan street porcelain China and Japan.
