Lovers of exquisite Herend Porcelain Figurines and Dinnerware will delight at the sight of the pieces in this collection at Distinctive Decor. Herend figurines are world-renowned for their signature fishnet design. They have been an intricate part of the lives of kings, queens and princesses. Even Queen Victoria dined on Herend china and Princess Diana was said to always be absolutely thrilled to find a Herend piece in her holiday stocking.
Founded in 1826, Herend originally produced pottery. However, in 1839, new owner Mor Fischer added in dinnerware aimed at European royal families. In 1851, England's Queen Victoria purchased a large set for Windsor Castle. The set she ordered featured a butterfly and floral pattern. Fischer named the pattern after the queen. Her pattern became known as the Victoria pattern. Afterwards, Herend dinnerware was widely sought after by other English and European aristocrats that wanted to bring the stunning china into their homes.
By the 1870s, Herend added their now hotly coveted porcelain figurines to their collection. The signature fishnet design first appeared in 1874 and has since become extremely popular, especially in the United States. Herend began being imported into America in 1957.
