Formed in the early 1800s, Herend has designed sculptures and hand-painted porcelain dishware for nearly two centuries. The company originated in Hungary, gaining recognition throughout Europe, and later into the United State. Along with the trademarked fishnet pattern, the Herend bird has earned recognition as a famed company design.
Fans will find the Herend bird, appearing as different bird types and in various colors, painted and sculpted onto many products. A relatively comprehensive list includes teacups, saucers, teapots, dinner plates, salad plates, dessert plates, shell dishes, trays, bowls, and butter knives. The company also crafts Herod bird figurines, standing alone or on stumps and around four inches long. Fine decorative collectible collectors adore these Herend birds.
