LIONESS ON WATCH 9.5"L X 3.75"H Limited Edition Size = 150 From the tan body to the gold fishnet, this figurine embodies so much warmth one can almost feel the heat of the African sun radiating back. While the lioness may be lying in repose, the drama of her eyes shows that she is ever vigilant and any prey would be foolish to mistake this for an afternoon nap.
Herend hand crafts porcelain dinnerware and home accessories adorned in a variety of hand painted patterns.

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.
