TREE FROGS ON LEAF 9.25"L X 3.75"H Limited Edition Size = 250 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. Luckily for these two amphibians, once they discover the accolades that often arise with being part of the Reserve collection, they will soon realize that there is greater benefit in sticking around (pun intended) than fleeing.

Herend

Herend hand crafts porcelain dinnerware and home accessories adorned in a variety of hand painted patterns. Favorite patterns in the U.S. include Queen Victoria, introduced in 1851 and named for her royal majesty after she purchased a large set for Windsor Castle; Rothschild Bird, created for the European banking family in 1860 to portray a legend about Baroness Rothschild losing her pearl necklace in the family garden; and Chinese Bouquet, designed in 1930 for Hungarian Count Albert Apponyi . From the very beginning, Herend’s animal figurines painted in a fishnet design took the U.S. by storm. Now, over 50 years later, the ranks of enthusiasts clamoring for figurines in the signature Herend fishnet pattern continue to multiply.
