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.

Their role as guardians against evil spirits will surely be compromised when these Foo dogs are distracted by an admiring public coming in for a closer look. The dynamic pair reflects multiple layers of history and symbolism from their role as Chinese guardian lions down to their pattern of a stylized chrysanthemum flower which symbolizes longevity. However, in this case, the duo needs to be resigned to the fact that their more noble function will take a back seat to the lure of aesthetics found in the striking combination of their sapphire color offset by 24K gold.
