Herend is a china company that has been enjoyed by royalty and everyday people alike since 1826. In the small village of Herend, Hungary, Vince Stingl established the pottery business. It didn’t find major success until it changed hands, landing in those of Mór Fischer in 1839. Herend specialized in making replacement pieces for collections that were difficult to find if broken or lost. Fischer took this capability and focused it on royal families. Now doing work for the likes of Queen Victoria, Herend’s esteemed reputation led Fischer to further the company, hiring on manufactory artists to design dinnerware patterns of their own. In 1851, Queen Victoria purchased Herend’s original work, prompting hundreds of wealthy aristocrats to follow suit. The company then introduced painted figurines to its porcelain offerings in the 1850s, but they became a truly popular household item in the 1950s. The Hungarian brand was brought to the United States in 1957, where it saw great prosperity. Though one of their most famous patterns is the Rothschild Bird, we carry many more gorgeous discontinued Herend china patterns in our inventory.
