FOX & HOUND 5.75"L X 7.5"H The legends and tall tales from this day, passed down from the fox to his grandchildren, will speak of his cunning and bravery in outwitting the hound. The reality of that fateful day falls closer to the talented hands of a Herend artist rendering faux bois in such a skillful manner that the hound was overcome with confusion by the disconnect between his nose and his eyes. Wherever the truth may fall, the one thing all parties would certainly agree on is that the deep, saturated tones of the tree trunk and the vibrant fishnet colors of the fox and the hound create a striking new addition to the Reserve Collection.
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.
