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.
It is said that longhorns were groomed by Mother Nature and a quick review of this cattle’s abilities would leave anyone convinced. The descendant of hardy Spanish stock, the longhorn can thrive in areas where no other breed can live; subsist on weeds and brush; go days without water and handle the extremes of weather without any problems. The newest member of the Reserve Collection beautifully captures the spirit of this animal from its determined disposition to the characteristic long horns.
