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.
Well-known symbols of Wall Street and the dynamics of the market require an arresting presence equal to the thrill and risk of playing the money game. To accomplish this the artists at Herend have once again risen to the challenge and developed a heavy, intense brushstroke that gives the bear a potent, virile energy.
