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 helped lead the Herend manufactory to win 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" w x 3" d x 6" h.
