BLUE JAY 6"H Limited Edition Size = 250 He may be native to North America but in this case his flair is all Hungarian. A noisy songbird, the blue jay is not afraid to make his presence known with calls that carry for long distances; however, this time, his beautiful, painted feathers herald his arrival instead. The artists at Herend have embellished him with vibrant shades of blue with 24K gold highlights which are sure to put the other birds on notice.
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.
