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.
A full moon and a crisp winter landscape seem to be reflected back in the dramatic black, platinum and gray fishnet tones of this new addition to the Reserve Collection. On a long wintry night when stories are often told, the wolf’s proud stance and the intense depth of his eyes seem to speak to conquests of old and victories yet to come.
