Herend Porcelain – Beauty to be treasured forever
Herend porcelain is the permanent decoration of the offices and homes of emperors, filmstars, athletes, business people and collectors with a fine taste. It is not by accident that their owners hold the handcrafted product of the Manufactory that has enjoyed great popularity for nearly 200 years in such high esteem.
Handcrafting is not a new activity in Herend. Experienced craftsmen, often continuing family traditions of porcelain creation, have been holding and handing over the secrets of the precious pieces of the Manufactory.
Each year, Herend is introducing new products, and today, when most of the objects are resulted by mass, automated production, Herend is still able to show the real, timeless values of slow life and design.
Therefore, a Herend porcelain is never just a simple object for everyday use. It is always a unique work of art.
