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 zebra, a giraffe and an elephant walk into a bar… While how they ended up in this position is anyone’s guess, one theory is that they fought over who is the most stylish in their dapper duds. The elephant is literally tooting his own horn about the orange chrysanthemum pattern while the zebra proudly stays true to his natural coloration since he knows it provides enough drama in its own right. Meanwhile, the giraffe is clearly so taken with the fishnet pattern that he is admiring it from every possible angle.
