HEREND HISTORY:

Founded in 1826. The Herend Porcelain Manufactory is a Hungarian manufacturing company, it is based in the town of Herend near the city of Veszprém.

The company specializing in luxury hand-painted and gilded porcelain. In the mid-19th century, it was purveyor to the Habsburg dynasty and aristocratic customers throughout Europe. Many of its classic patterns are still in production.

The famous fishnet decor first took form in 1858 when a Herend painter became inspired by a fishscale design he saw on a Chinese porcelain plate and painted a similar pattern onto a rooster figurine to imitate feathers. The rest is history, with the fishnet design now a Herend signature prized worldwide.
