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.
With such an iconic animal, Herend’s artists knew they simply need to heighten the beauty that was already there. By creating such a strong contrast between the platinum fishnet and the saturated, almost liquid black stripes, the zebra seems to shimmer before our eyes and becomes an electrifying new member of the Reserve Collection.
