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.
