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.
He may have an unfortunate name but when blue-footed booby is dressed up Herend-style, this bird is nobody’s fool! Even when they aren’t sporting dramatic gold fishscale details, these marine birds are not lacking in confidence as anyone who has seen the male strut during his courtship ritual can attest to. The seduction consists of the male flaunting and raising up his blue feet and dancing to impress his future mate. The more vibrant the blue, the more impressed the female is. No doubt, Herend’s booby will surely be a favorite among the ladies this season.
