DESCRIPTION: Absolutely timeless! This unique handpainted vintage miniature Herend vase is perfect for your night table in summer, to enhance fragrant tea roses from your garden. On pristine white hardpaste porcelain, the design features a brightly colored medley of florals on one side, and three single florals on the other side. Rimmed in gold, the fluted base and rim is of design interest and adds to the unique Herend quality.
It is said you must brush your fingers across Herend pieces to fully appreciate the white porcelain, handpainted designs, and to fully understand the passion and vision of each master painter. I wholeheartedly agree.
Herend (near Budapest) Hungary, 1826-present, was founded by Vince Stingl and the company made earthenware. Herend was acquired by Mor (or Moric or Moritz) Fischer in 1839 whose productions were inspired by Sevres, Meissen and Vienna, and included fine reproductions. His grandson later assumed the business and it was nationalized in 1944 and re-privatized after 1990.
WHY I LIKE IT: To own a Herend piece is to own a unique piece of art. Each piece is expertly handpainted with details that mesmerize. The creation of such porcelain masterpieces are to be enjoyed by those who collect and appreciate fine period pieces. This is a wonderful miniature piece to 'gift' as the start of a lifelong collection!
