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.
Snorkling in crystal clear waters with the warmth of the sun on your back, you stumble upon a sea turtle leisurely drifting among a colorful coral seascape. You are grateful that he does not swim away but then remember the guide telling you that his forefathers have been around since before the time of the dinosaurs so this dapper fellow’s calm demeanor is rooted in a long ancestral history. Your eyes shift between the dramatic colors on his shell and the fascinating plant life just below him, enchanted by this beautiful scene that seems to have appeared for your eyes only. Herend has added another masterpiece to its Reserve Collection with vibrant colors from all parts of the spectrum painting a vivid scene of a sea turtle nestled among coral and kelp.
