“Brush your fingers along Herend’s smooth white porcelain body and хэнд painted designs, and sense the passion of great sculptors, master painters and visionary designers imbued in every piece they lovingly craft.” –Herend
With humble beginПings in the small village of Herend, Hungary in 1826, Herend porcelain would go through many stages of economic change in the porcelain industry before being discovered by European royalty. After, it would gain admirers across the seas soon creating a worldwide following. Enjoyed by generation after generation since, today, Herend’s supreme porcelain is acclaimed as “white gold” by those who know its artistic allure and dramatic beauty.
Haleh Design is thrilled to have recently acquired three one-of-a-kind museum quality Herend masterpieces which were never meant to leave the Herend factory, nor be sold. This is the first time a one-of-a-kind Herend master creation has ever been offered to anyone. Historically, one would have to tour the factory in order to view them. Of the 400 painters at the Herend factory there are only 20 or so Master Artists at any given time. The final step in being bestowed with the coveted title “Master Artist” is to create a masterpiece on your own which is then presented to a judging board. Based on your work the board decides if you become a Master Artist. These pieces are those master creations.
