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.
An imaginative piece by the artists at Herend that seemingly makes it appear like this herbivore is walking through the dense vegetation that he so loves to eat. Painted in a mosaic pattern of gold, brown and green, the fishnet colors serve to complete the allusion to the rhino’s natural habitat and make this a dynamic, vibrant figurine.
