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.
A turtle pyramid is the best way to reach up for those critical UV rays and to soak up some essential heat. In this case, the sun is also shining a spotlight on this lounging duo’s arresting mix of Herend’s classic fishnet pattern combined with vivid streaks of color. The result is a dramatic variation on the turtles’ usual camouflage painted to reflect the colors found in the diverse layers of the pond they like to call home.
