HEREND FORAINS D'ORIENT CHINA

A pair of cups created in Vienna, Austria in the early 19th century inspired the FODO pattern.

Initially, the motifs on European porcelain pieces were copies of their far-eastern models, but while the characteristic Chinese and Japanese motifs usually carried a symbolic meaning, the makers of their European counterparts used them purely for decorative purposes. This style, known as Chinoise, was widely used in art and design, and the set depicting Oriental characters is a stunning example.

The rim of each snow-white piece, the lid knobs and the sprouts are lavishly gilded and the dishes are adorned with various combinations of six Chinese figures, birds, dragons, plants on a gold-speckled background.

In the second half of the 19th century, Herend was authorized by Emperor Franz Joseph to use the patterns. Herend artists did not simply adopt these motifs, but reinterpreted and adjusted them to their own painting style, as evidenced by this pattern.
