This darling little Herend ring or trinket box is quite a rare piece – it is specially marked on the bottom in observance of the 100th anniversary of the Herend Porcelain Co. when Moritz Fischer purchased the manufacturing plant in 1839. Herend Manufacturing was established by Vince Stingl in 1826, with a focus on making stoneware pieces. The company was purchased by Fischer in 1839 and moved to the Lake Balaton area of Hungary, and he began making porcelain pieces at that time. He perfected the manufacture of the porcelain to the point that he won a Gold Medal at the first World Exhibition in London in 1851. In 1872 Emperor Francis Joseph named Herend the official supplier to the Imperial and Royal Court. After Fischer retired, his sons took over the company in 1874, but they had to file for bankruptcy ten years later, and the company was taken over by Herend Porcelain Works Co. to manage the restructured business.
This 2 7/8” ring box was made in 1939 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Moritz Fischer’s porcelain company. It is hand decorated with flowers and has gold trim around the top and bottom of the box. It is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks; there are a couple of rub marks on the box, but don’t readily show. The glaze is still very shiny.
This would be a beautiful addition to your Herend collection or to use on your vanity every day. Please contact us if you have any questions.
