Poissons

Click to view

This is one of the oldest Herend patterns. Poissons, with its depictions of colourful fish, has Chinese origins. The ground is provided by special porcelain with a blueish tinge. The richly gilded rim encircles a blue border field in a geometrical design. Then come motifs of stylized waterweed in light and dark green alternating with sprigs of blossom. The well displays black, brick-red and gold-scaled fish swimming among water-weed. These symbolize plenty and good fortune. This charmingly colourful pattern has caught the eye of many people, including a 19th-century Duke of Windsor, who ordered a 24-place table service in the pattern.
