Pleased to offer you some of the most fabulous hand painted dinnerware you'll ever find in numerous listings. The Rothschild Bird pattern was created for the family by Herend in 1850, and illustrates an interesting bit of Rothschild family lore. As one version of the story goes, Baroness Rothschild couldn't find her pearl necklace after losing it in the garden one day. Several days later, her gardener noticed a pair of birds playing with something shiny in a tree, and, upon further investigation, discovered it was the Baroness's pearl necklace! Rothschild Bird remains in production today, and stands as a testimony to Herend's tremendous artistic standards. Each place setting has a different hand painted design featuring birds and insects.
Made in Hungary and mostly purchased in Hungary and New York in the 60's. They are in excellent condition, very lovingly cared for. It was believed to be the epitome of hand painting on porcelain with 24 carat gold trim.
