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.
The Achomawi people of southern California have a legend that the silver fox was created from fog. A fitting description for this beautiful animal whose color can vary from completely black (except for the tip of its tail) to a more cinereous color. As if still dripping from his formation in cloud of suspended water droplets, the artists at Herend have used a spectrum of moody fishnet colors to create this striking addition to the Reserve Collection.
