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.
Both an homage to Chinese dynasties of yore and a thoroughly modern composition, this vibrant dragon cachepot skillfully reconciles both perspectives to create a powerful statement piece. Undulating through a dense thicket, the dragon’s path remains unimpeded as the flora yields to his presence for the legend of the dragon has been passed down for generations and heralded his power long before his shadow is seen.
