    Herend Reserve Blossoming Tortoise

    Herend Reserve Blossoming Tortoise

    The colors, ridges and patterns found on a tortoise’s shell usually work to conceal the turtle and make him less conspicuous. In the case of this newest member of the Reserve Collection, either the tortoise spends all of his days frolicking in a meadow hiding out among flowers and wild berries or then he is abandoning his camouflage strategy. Who could blame him if it was the latter since such beautiful applied and painted details would make any turtle come out of his shell (pun intended)! Limited Edition of 225. Measures 8 ¾" l x 4" h.

    Herend Reserve Tree Frogs On Leaf

    Herend Reserve Tree Frogs On Leaf

    Some species of tree frogs use a technique called startle coloration to protect themselves from predators. If a hungry bird or snake happens to approach a sleeping tree frog, the frog will suddenly open its bulging eyes and reveal the bold splash of red. This will usually stun the predator long enough for the frog to gain a few seconds to escape. In the case of Herend’s tree frogs, the artists may have inadvertently compromised the full effect of startle coloration by painting the frogs in such a captivating way that rather than being stunned, the primary response is apt to be admiration. Measures 9 ¼"l x 3 ¾"h. Limited edition of 250. Handmade Herend porcelain from Hungary.

    Pair of Imperial Foo Dogs

    Pair of Imperial Foo Dogs

    With their origins in China, Herend’s Foo dogs are the perfect models to be dressed in the dramatic Chinoiserie pattern called Macao. This pattern first made its debut at the 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair where it, among other patterns on display, led to the Herend manufactory winning a gold medal. The saturated tones of Macao are due to the fact that the pattern is painted in enamel colors. Enamel painting is a very difficult process in that the enamel has a unique density and more layers than normal are applied to create the rich pigmentation. However, it is a balancing act of beauty versus technical constraints because if one layer is applied unevenly, it can prevent the paint from adhering to the piece. Therefore, only seasoned artists, with their skills and knowledge, are entrusted with working with enamel colors. Limited edition of 250.

    Each measures 6 ½"l x 3"w x 6"h.

    Herend Reserve Woodpecker on Tree

    Herend Reserve Woodpecker on Tree

    Almost as if they are conspiring together, a ladybug momentarily distracts a woodpecker so that the grub can make its getaway. Even if the woodpecker lost this round, his strong bill and sticky, barbed tongue ensure that he won’t be hungry for long. Although the insect population may disagree, woodpeckers are welcome additions to forests due to their ability to protect trees from mass infestations of pests. In this case, the woodpecker also provides a vibrant contrast to the surrounding arboreal colors with rust and gray fishnet on his head and body offset by dramatic 24k gold highlights on his wings and tail feathers. Measures 2 ½"l x 3"w x 6 ¾"h. Limited edition of 150.

    Herend Reserve Pair of Macaws Figurine

    Herend Reserve Pair of Macaws Figurine

    A rare quiet moment in the life of two macaws is beautifully captured in this sweet vignette. Gregarious, vocal parrots, macaws will mate for life and tend to live in large “talkative” family groups. Their plumage is as spirited as the bird and, while it seems counterintuitive, serves as a protective device by blending in well among the colorful fruits, flowers and bluish-shadows of the macaw’s rainforest home. With no subtle sparrow at hand, the artists at Herend knew they had to create an exotic medley of fishnet colors as vibrant as the birds themselves. Pulling from the full spectrum of the rainbow, yellow, key lime and all shades of blue converge to create a tropical tableau. Limited Edition Size of 150

    Herend Reserve Spotted Sandpiper on Sandwood

    Herend Reserve Spotted Sandpiper on Sandwood

    Mother nature perfected him and now Herend’s artists have immortalized the famous little shorebird often found darting along the water’s edge doing his memorable bobbing dance. With stilt-like legs designed for standing in water and a long beak ideal for digging for coastal creatures, the sandpiper is a common presence along beaches (but can actually be found anywhere with water). In the hands of Herend’s artists, the sandpiper makes his debut in dramatic fashion from his striking coloration to the swirls of texture on the driftwood to the natural painting on the shells so detailed they appear plucked from nature.

    Herend Reserve Collection Buddha

    Herend Reserve Collection Buddha

    Meaning “The Awakened" or “Enlightened One,” Buddha was the title given to Siddhartha Gautama, believed to have lived 563-483 B.C. According to legend, Gautama left a life of luxury at age 29 and devoted himself to years of contemplation and self-denial, finally reaching enlightenment while meditating beneath a tree. Henceforth, he spent his life teaching his beliefs and achievement of the enlightened state of Nirvana. Herend’s Reserve Collection Buddha is modeled after a smaller version sculpted in 1937 by Kata Gacser. The chinoiserie design decorating Buddha’s robe was created in 1996 to symbolize autumn, with its glorious colors of nature offset by a sense of mourning over the pending harshness of winter. The skills of eighteen Herend craftspeople are required to create each piece, which takes over a day to paint. Limited Edition Size 250 (8.6"H)

    Herend Reserve Collection Large Giraffe

    Herend’s newest figurine will no doubt incite similar curiosity to those first “diplomatic” giraffes since their newest introduction is an ambassador of creativity. Showcasing an unusual spin on traditional fishnet, the reserve collection giraffe features a modified fishnet made to look like animal print. This new fishnet technique is a complex process. It takes one artist over 20 hours to paint since it requires much concentration as the artist has to create “unnatural” breaks to mimic the spots - contrary to the usual, fluid style involved with painting fishnet.

    Herend Reserve Collection Covered Urn

    Herend Reserve Collection Covered Urn

    The story reveals how one day Baroness Rothschild went for a stroll in her garden in Vienna and lost the pearl necklace she was wearing. An exhaustive search by her staff yielded nothing. A few days later, a gardener noticed the birds were excitedly chirping and fluttering around something and he went over to investigate. That is when he discovered the birds had taken a liking to the Baroness’ necklace which was caught on a tree branch In 1860, this story inspired the creation of the Rothschild Bird pattern which was so well-received that soon similar bird designs were being produced by almost every major European porcelain manufacturer. With this introduction we celebrate Rothschild Bird and all of its many moods with a covered urn featuring all 12 motifs as well as all of the border colors that have been presented over the years. Available in a limited edition of 250, the urn is inscribed with a special commemorative anniversary logo which reads “Rothschild Bird 150th Anniversary”. Limited Edition 250.

    Herend Reserve Collection Lion on Pedestal

    Herend Reserve Collection Lion on Pedestal

    From Europe to Africa and Asia, lions have been associated with strength, grace and nobility for thousands of years. Furthermore, it is their association with power that has led many different cultures to depict lions as sentinels standing guard at the entrances to revered places. Hungarian sculptors have continued this same tradition, and a tour around Budapest reveals numerous examples from the Hungarian Parliament building to the lions’ gate entrance of the Royal Palace. However, the most prominent lions in Budapest are those flanking the city’s famous and oft-photographed Chain Bridge. The first permanent connection between the Buda and Pest sides of the city (split by the Danube river), this suspension bridge (built in 1849) ignited the economic revival that would lead to Budapest's golden century. Guarding the historic bridge on both sides, the two pairs of stately lions were created in 1852 by Hungarian sculptor János Marschalkó. Fittingly, these sentinel lions remained intact (and on duty) when the rest of the bridge was destroyed in World War II (it was rebuilt in 1949). Limited Edition 250.

    Herend Reserve Collection Carps at Dragons Gate

    Herend Reserve Collection Carps at Dragons Gate

    In the Shanxi Province of China, the most spectacular in a series of steep gorges that squeeze the languid Yellow River into a raging torrent is called Dragon’s Gate. It is common for carp to gather there. The name of the gorge arises from the belief that any carp which can surmount the waterfalls in the area will go on to soar into the sky and transform itself into a dragon which is the most powerful and divine creature in all of Chinese mythology. The carp is the only fish with the strength and courage to swim against such rapid currents and therefore it has come to symbolize perseverance and achievement. In fact, the expression “Carp jumping over the Dragon Gate” is often used as a metaphor for students who have passed their examinations. In Feng Shui, carp represent success, prosperity and good fortune. When presented as a pair, the double carp also symbolize harmony and marital bliss. With Herend’s interpretation, the difficulty of the task at hand is aptly conveyed by the angry blue rapids which appear to be reaching up to tear the carp back down. The ornate gold gates with the vivid rust detailing beckon with their promise of good fortune to come. On the carp themselves, the use of the strong rust color contrasted with the gold fishnet captures the energy of the fish and the vibrancy of the sun’s rays cascading off the wet and iridescent fish scales as the carp struggle upstream. Available in a limited edition of 250, the figurine is 7.5” long and 7.25” tall. Limited Edition Size 250. (7.5"L X 7.25"H)

    Herend Reserve Collection Watchful Owl

    Herend Reserve Collection Watchful Owl

    It isn’t vanity that drives the owl to don his face mask daily; rather, these feathers heighten his sensory perception and allow him to notice the smallest stirrings on the forest floor. Known as a facial disc, the feathers act as a parabola which collects sound waves and directs those to the owl’s ears. Along the same lines, the owl’s mottled feather pattern is more than just decorative and serves to camouflage the owl by allowing him to blend into the branches of a tree. Brought to dramatic new heights by Herend’s painters in a mantle of green, rust, brown and terracotta, the Watchful Owl’s camouflage wings allow this nocturnal bird of prey to become a stealth hunter. During the day, it allows him to get a good day’s rest hidden among the tree branches, undisturbed by scolding songbirds who, under the protection of daylight when an owl is less effective without the element of surprise, will often gang up on an owl to let him know exactly what they think of him (from the safe distance of a branch or two away of course).

    Herend Reserve Collection Weather Vane

    Herend Reserve Collection Weather Vane

    A strong north wind blows in Herend today and the locals say this means cold weather is coming. While modern technology may end up providing a different weather report, the rooster is merely doing what he has been doing since the 9th century AD when a papal edict stipulated that each church must be adorned by a cockerel. Since many church steeples already featured a weather vane, it was a natural step for the rooster to become the default weather vane motif. While his traditional copper coloration is nothing new for a weather vane, it is the first time a Herend figurine has been painted in this fishnet color (with additional drama provided by the new blue, sapphire, on the wings, tail-feathers and base). However, contrary to his brethren in the field, the patina of Herend’s weather vane will never change with oxidation and his heart remains forever porcelain.

    Herend Reserve Collection Silk Road Elephant

    Herend Reserve Collection Silk Road Elephant

    This striking elephant is a replica of an antique figurine depicting an elephant carrying goods along the silk road. The silk road was an interconnected series of ancient trading routes stretching from China to the Mediterranean Sea. The silk road not only served as a means of moving precious commodities back and forth but was also significant for bringing new cultural influences. This Pink Elephant figurine certainly demonstrates this Eastern influence through its highly ornate decorative style including the dramatic rug on its back.

    Herend Reserve Collection Tropical Reef

    Herend Reserve Collection Tropical Reef

    It takes one Herend painter 4 days to create this masterpiece which consists of 40 different components. Only a complex figurine could properly convey a coral reef- known as the busiest neighborhood in the ocean. Often referred to as the rainforest of the sea, the diversity and colors of the animals inhabiting a coral reef is unmatched anywhere else in the aquatic realm. While many theories abound, there are two popular thoughts as to why the fish in a coral reef are so colorful and textured. First, the reef and its inhabitants reflect so many colors that the fish are just doing their part to blend in with their surroundings and be less obvious to predators. Their colors act as camouflage. A second reason is that the colors and patterns allow fish to identify friend and foe and find their own kind in the crowded reef environment. With Herend’s tropical reef, the viewer has stumbled on a symphonic fishnet celebration with blue, key lime, and butterscotch fish dancing through the welcoming arms of a key lime coral dappled with 24K gold. Conch shells, sea snails, brain coral and starfish, while not as exuberant as their fish friends, add their own style of fun to the neighborhood party. Limited Edition Size 100. (8.5"L X 13.5"H)

    Herend Reserve Giant Clam

    Herend Reserve Giant Clam

    If not for a shell, the beauty of porcelain would be known by a completely different name. In fact, it was Marco Polo who forever linked the two together. In his book Il Milione, also known as The Travels of Marco Polo, the famous Venetian trader compared the fascinating lustrous sheen of the Chinese ceramic he discovered in the Far East to that of the mother-of-pearl surface of a cowrie shell. At the time, the cowrie shell was well-known since it was used as currency in many parts of Asia, Africa and India and in the old Italian language it went by the term “porcellana”. Marco Polo’s book was a huge best seller by 14th century standards and was widely distributed in Europe and, as result, the word porcellana became synonymous with this intriguing new discovery from China.

    How fitting, therefore, that seven centuries later, the Herend manufactory is paying homage to the link between shells and porcelain by immortalizing the world’s largest bivalve mollusk. A native of the south pacific and Indian Ocean, the giant clam can grow to be 4 feet long and over 500lbs. Their size is attributed to a steady diet of the sugars and proteins produced by the millions of algae living in the clam’s tissue. While Herend’s interpretation is not quite that healthy, it does highlight the pearlized surface that first drove Marco Polo’s comparison. Below the shiny core is a base of blue fishnet with 24K gold highlights.

    Herend Reserve Collection: Horse Bust

    Quiet dignity, abundant grace and unbridled spirit are adroitly captured in Herend’s porcelain portrayal of one of society’s best-loved animals. Although horses’ earliest contact with man was around 30,000 B.C., domestication wasn’t seen until 3000 B.C. in China where horse-drawn carriages were used in wars. Horses became a popular subject in Roman art, and they gained further recognition by cowboys and American Indians who relied heavily on them for survival. The word “equus” – meaning horse – originated in ancient Greece and means “quickness.” Seventeen craftspeople give form to Herend’s magnificent horse bust, which requires three days to paint.

    Herend Reserve Collection Laughing Buddha

    Herend Reserve Collection Laughing Buddha

    The Laughing Buddha emerged from Chinese folktales of the 10th century. The original stories centered on a monk named Ch'i-t'zu who was an eccentric but much-loved character who worked small, charitable wonders. The tales of Ch'i-t'zu soon spread throughout China, and he came to be called Pu-tai which means "hempen sack." Of course, any Feng Shui practitioner would be well acquainted with this smiling character since he is a popular symbol of happiness, generosity and luck and his presence is said to impart wealth and abundance on any home or office. Any depiction of the Laughing Buddha is heavy on symbolism. For example, many theories abound about why he is shown with elongated earlobes with the most pervasive being that the earlobes reflect that the Buddha is all-hearing and has ears big enough to listen to all of our tales of suffering. His name, Pu-tai, refers to the omnipresent hempen sack containing precious gifts. At the same time, he also uses the sack to dispose of people’s problems. The Laughing Buddha usually clutches a set of prayer beads which represent “a never-ending meditation practice, even when engaged in worldly activities”. His ample stomach, which is rubbed for good-luck, is prominently exposed to reflect “abundance” as well his ability to stomach all of the world’s problems and transform them into happiness. The artists at Herend have made the Laughing Buddha their own by incorporating new layers of symbolism. By painting him in the rich, highly ornate Jiangxi pattern, they have created one more reference to abundance. The Jiangxi pattern also features a recurring lotus motif which is very prominent in Buddhism. The lotus flower represents the Buddha mind because, “though growing in mire, it puts forth beautiful, immaculate flowers”. Presented in a limited edition of 250, the Laughing Buddha stands 14” tall and comes in a luxury case. Limited Edition Size 250. (5.25"L X 14"H)

    Herend Reserve Collection Sphinx

    Herend Reserve Collection Sphinx

    The Sphinx is dressed in a breathtakingly intricate design called Tattoo, which takes a Herend artist seven full days to paint. Because tattooing was practiced by the ancient Egyptians 4000 years ago, the design was a natural choice for Herend’s Sphinx. Egypt’s Great Sphinx was named after a legendary Greek creature with the body of a lion and head of a woman. The word sphinx in Greek means “to strangle,” as the sphinx from Greek mythology strangled anyone incapable of answering her riddle. Just as the Great Sphinx of Giza required monumental work to construct, twenty-five pairs of hands are involved in creating Herend’s version. Each must be fired at least six times, as compared to three times for typical Herend figurines. Limited Edition Size 250. (11.5"L X 6.5"H)

    Herend Reserve Collection Geisha

    Herend Reserve Collection Geisha

    The elegant, high-culture world that geisha are a part of is called karyûkai or "the flower and willow world". With that in mind, Herend artists have reinterpreted their geisha originally created in 1943 by Gyula Maugsch. They have dressed her up in a kimono in the ornate Empereur pattern which features lotus blossoms among other flower motifs finished off by a striking green border alluding to the long, sweeping branches of the willow tree. This level of detail takes 3 Herend artists a combined total of 42 hours to complete. Limited Edition Size 250. (5.5"L X 8.5"H)

    Herend Reserve Collection Madonna & Child

    Herend Reserve Collection Madonna & Child

    Herend’s Madonna & Child is based on a Gothic wooden statue from (circa) 1420 called the Second Madonna of Toporc which is housed in the Hungarian National Gallery. The porcelain version made its debut in 1940 when artist Kata Gacser reinterpreted the image for the manufactory. In 2009, this figurine is being introduced for the first time in a mantle of forget-me-nots. Based on medieval legend, the pairing of the Myosotis pattern (botanical Latin for forget-me-not)with this figurine has significance beyond the purely aesthetic. Legend has it that the Christ child was sitting on Mary’s lap one day and said that he wished that future generations could see the beauty of her eyes. He touched her eyes and then waved his hand over the ground and the blue of her eyes appeared forever in the form of the forget-me-not. It takes 3 painters a combined total of 48 hours to create this figurine. Limited Edition Size 250. (5"W X 22"H)

    Herend Reserve Collection Mermaid on Shell

    Herend Reserve Collection Mermaid on Shell

    Depictions of mythical mermaids differ strongly. Sometimes they are sirens of the sea luring sailors to their deaths with their song. Other times they are keepers of the ocean charged with rescuing mankind from accidents. Regardless of the mermaid’s intent, the legends agree that they are elusive, alluring beauties. Herend’s mermaid, with her soft smile, is not sharing her secrets today but even without her song, she still enchants. Perched on a giant clam shell with its pearlized core exposed, she holds a 24K gold tulip shell - maybe a silent invitation to the riches of the watery depths below. Blue layered upon green strokes of color comprise her key lime fishnet- the perfect camouflage for a water nymph. Perhaps not even her porcelain skin will prevent her from slipping away to once again entice and confound seafarers everywhere. Limited Edition Size 250. (9"L X 10"H)
