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.

Despite this broad range, mountain lions live secretive and solitary lives. While this feline’s history may be an enigma, he reveals much through his powerful limbs, purposeful pose and the soulful nature of his dramatic, green eyes.
