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.
Native to Africa and Eurasia, the exotic flavors of this antelope’s home are reflected in his exuberant coat of dramatic Chinoiserie motifs. To ensure a spectacular debut as part of the Reserve Collection, Herend’s artist have artfully reimagined their antelope and painted him in rich colors that conjure up spices, hidden treasures and severe landscapes of breathtaking beauty.
