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.
Jaguars are known as apex predators which means they exist at the top of their food chain and are not preyed on in the wild. In looking at Herend’s newest member of the Reserve Collection, one can’t help but consider this an apex figurine. From the beautiful details of his spots to the perfect proportion of his body to the alert, omniscient eyes, this figurine is the pinnacle of Herend’s unrivaled ability to capture the essence of an animal.
