SAFARI ANIMALS 8.5"L X 12.75"H Limited Edition Size = 150 A zebra, a giraffe and an elephant walk into a bar… While how they ended up in this position is anyone’s guess, one theory is that they fought over who is the most stylish in their dapper duds. The elephant is literally tooting his own horn about the orange chrysanthemum pattern while the zebra proudly stays true to his natural coloration since he knows it provides enough drama in its own right. Meanwhile, the giraffe is clearly so taken with the fishnet pattern that he is admiring it from every possible angle.
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.
