During the feudal regime, to be able to inherit and learn the silver craft skill was very difficult, moreover, the difficulty in good exchange activities between areas within small consumption market at that time had limited the silver craft development.

After the war, from 1954, Dong Xam craftsmen joined together with great determination to revive the traditional workshops. Cooperatives were opened to produce goods for the State such as cigarette trays, standing oil lamps, and fine-art boxes. During this period, Dong Xam silver products were mainly exported to Eastern Europe and Russia.During the years of socio-economic reform.
