The American Kestrel may be North America's smallest raptor but by no means does that diminish its abilities as a hunter as evidenced by those impressive talons. What it lacks in size the kestrel makes up in coloration since it is considered the most colorful of raptors. Often found perched on a wire or a pole, the kestrel will pump its long tail to keep its balance while scanning for an unfortunate grasshopper. The sculptors and painters at Herend had no desire to ...Read more of post

Mother nature perfected him and now Herend's artists have immortalized the famous little shorebird often found darting along the water's edge doing his memorable bobbing dance. With stilt-like legs designed for standing in water and a long beak ideal for digging for coastal creatures, the sandpiper is a common presence along beaches (but can actually be found anywhere with water). In the hands of Herend's artists, the sandpiper makes his debut in dramatic fashion from ...Read more of post

Depictions of mythical mermaids differ strongly. Sometimes they are sirens of the sea luring sailors to their deaths with their song. Other times they are keepers of the ocean charged with rescuing mankind from accidents. Regardless of the mermaid's intent, the legends agree that they are elusive, alluring beauties. Herend's mermaid, with her soft smile, is not sharing her secrets today but even without her song, she still enchants. Perched on a giant clam shell with its...Read more of post

When mother nature gets it right from the start, she knows better than to continuously improve upon her own design. That is probably why the nautilus has remained virtually unchanged in over 500 million years and is considered to be a living fossil. The artists at Herend know perfection when they see it, so they have decided to simply add some Herend-style flourishes such as dramatic gold fishnet and touches of pearlized paint to further highlight the beautiful details ...Read more of post

Speaking volumes without uttering a sound, the story of a fierce apex predator is told through a powerful sculpture and dramatic painting. As the largest living cat species, a tiger needs no introduction nor embellishment and through the artists at Herend, the intensity, energy and beauty of this feline is exquisitely captured in porcelain.

Often described as flying jewels due to their remarkable colors, some male hummingbirds have learned to orient their bodies and feathers towards the sun to enhance the visual impact of their iridescent plumage and to heighten their appeal during courtship. It appears that Herend's hummingbird has learned this lesson well and has briefly stopped his dazzling wings so that their beauty can be appreciated from all angles. However, this avian acrobat won't sit still for long...Read more of post

Freshly painted for the season, this horse is sure to be the most popular choice during those hectic seconds when the gates to the merry-go-round open and picking the best carousel horse seems critically important. Vibrant, colorful roses, striking gold tassels and a stance which holds the promise of an adventure complete the scene.

American Goldfinches are likely attendees at any backyard buffet, but an experienced host knows that these guests will attend a summer soiree en masse if sunflowers are on the menu.

Did their flamboyant, gregarious nature come first or did their vibrant pink feathers? Either way, roseate spoonbills are known equally for their colorful, unusual appearance (that large spoon-shaped bill) and their very social behavior. The artists at Herend have adhered to a faithful rendition but have naturally added distinctive Herend touches with a sparkling platinum fishnet pattern combined with meticulous details on the feathers to draw deliberate attention to ...Read more of post
