Herend is known for its long history of producing the finest hand-painted porcelain worldwide. Herend’s trademark fishnet pattern design, which is most popular in the U.S., originated in 1858 when an artist intrigued with a Chinese plate’s fish scale design painted it onto a rooster figurine’s breast to imitate feathers. Each Herend figurine is handmade in Hungary.
His thick fur makes him impervious to snow and he uses his large head like a snow plow and yet the American bison can achieve speeds of up to 40 MPH. Mother Nature may have made him a highly efficient powerhouse but North America’s largest land mammal has always felt more hulking than handsome – until now. The artists at Herend have beautifully captured his virility and strength and covered it all in a mantle of gold accents and dramatic chocolate fishnet. Next breeding season the cows definitely won’t play so hard-to-get!
