Big Foo Dog (looking to the left) is painted in Vieux Herend (VHR) Red Fish scale design.
This fishnet or fish scale pattern is a typical motif of Herend.
It can be ordered in 14 different VH (fishnet/fish scale) colours.
In the name Foo Dog or Fu Dog, the Fo stands for Buddha or Prosperity. Herend and the whole Austro-Hungarian Monarchy was influenced by orientalism in the 19th century so it was obvious for them to include Foo Dogs in the product range. But where did Foo Dog came from?
