Herend Little Pig Standing
Herend Porcelain was founded in 1826 in the small village of Herend, Hungary to produce pottery. The first true porcelain pieces were developed in a very short time and exhibitions in Vienna, London, New York and Paris brought the highest recognition for Herend. Orders were made on behalf of several royal courts and for many aristocrats, both in Hungary and abroad. The names of well-known patterns refer to the first customers, Queen Victoria, Earl Apponyi, the Rothschilds, and so on. Herend was a main supplier of porcelain to the Habsburg Dynasty well. Now, Herend is one of the most famous and biggest porcelain manufacturers in the world.
