The Herend Manufactory Describes The Decoration Type "victoria Avec Bord En Or" As Following:
One of the oldest and most well-known patterns of the Herend Porcelain Manufactory is the beautiful Victoria decoration. This Oriental style pattern is composed of almost one hundred different lively painted butterflies and flower-covered branches.The surface of the glittering snow white porcelain is covered with a colourful cavalcade of butterflies, flowers and branches framed by the richly coloured gilt brim evoking the green fields. This richly colored decoration brought the first highly ranking recognition for Herend on which its
international fame rests since this set decorated with a beautiful pattern won the Jury's first prize at the 1851 world fair in London. This success however was genuinely crowned by Queen Victoria of England whose name was given to the decoration and who ordered a dinner set with this pattern for her palace. The pattern that caught Queen Victoria's eye makes a splendid sight with strong outlines.

About Herend (Manufacturer)

Herend Porcelain occupies a singular place in the world of luxury European ceramics. The firm's distinctive patterns are visually striking, and notably different from those of other major porcelain producers like Meissen or Sèvres. Whereas the latter tend to feature discrete decorative elements that appear to float on a white ground, Herend favors large, bold designs incorporating historical scenes, animals or vegetation.

Vince Stingl established what would become the Herend Porcelain Manufactory in 1826 in the town of Herend, Hungary, to produce earthenware. When he went bankrupt in the late 1830s, Mór Fischer, who took over, switched the focus from earthenware to porcelain to take advantage of the growing European market for fine china. By 1849, Herend counted among its clients members of the Habsburg dynasty and the Hungarian aristocracy. Thanks to its participation in several important international exhibitions and fairs—including the 1851 Crystal Palace Exhibition in London, the 1853 Exhibition of the Industry of All Nations in New York and the 1855 Exposition Universelle in Paris—its wares became a popular choice for courtly dining in the middle of the 19th century, and its patrons included Francis Joseph I of Austria and Queen Victoria of England, for whom its Viktória pattern was named.

The company foundered in the latter half of the 19th century under the leadership of Fischer’s two sons. But it was given new life, artistically and financially, when Fischer’s grandson, Jenő Farkasházy, himself a trained ceramist, took the helm around 1900. Farkasházy designed new patterns and revived classic ones. After World War II, Herend was nationalized by the Communist government, but kept alive its tradition of skilled craftsmanship by continuing to produce its classic patterns. In 1993, after the fall of the Iron Curtain, the factory was privatized once again and today is owned by its management and workers.

Herend’s animal figurines, like this grouping of white rabbits, are often covered head to toe with the factory’s famed “fish-scale” pattern, also known as Vieux Herend, which produces the effect of a dense coat of feathers or fur. The fish-scale pattern also appears on this chocolate cup and saucer decorated in the Cornucopia pattern.
