You will often see bear cubs taking refuge on their Mama's back when crossing through water or tough territory. These Herend Bear and Baby figurines portray this beautifully. 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.
