This, one of the Herend Porcelain Manufactory’s most popular décors, developed out of the Fleurs des Indes decoration. The centre of the plate shows a motif in Chinese style: the Fleurs des Indes (Flowers of the Indies) motif of a peony surrounded by leaves. Round the edge of the well runs a garland of stylized leaves, broken periodically by gilded and incised rosettes. On the ledge there is a contoured pattern of a flower surrounded by six leaves, decorated with sparkling flecks of gold.
The origin of the pattern is associated with Count Albert Apponyi, for whom this simplified version of Fleurs des Indes was first prepared. The Apponyi décor comes in green colour variant. The Apponyi pattern comes in several different colours. The artists of Herend paint variants in purple, powder pink, green, orange, blue, yellow, lilac, maroon, black, turquoise and combination of colours.
