This striking Snowy Owl features piercing yellow eyes and beautiful black and white feathers. The Snowy Owl differs from other owls as it is diurnal, not nocturnal. This allows them to hunt for their favorite prey, lemmings, throughout the continuous daylight in the Summer Arctic.
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.
