In 1826, a manufactory named Herend was established in Hungary and soon became the center of attention of connoisseurs of classic solid chinaware. The popularity of this brand is explained by the fact that the Emperor Franz Joseph was among those who preferred this brand.
One of the fans of Herend was the famous banker Rothschild, who ordered a china dinnerware set with refined patterns, images of birds and green leaves. One could see an image of a golden necklace hanging from a twig on each item. The family legend of the Rothschild was described in such an interesting style, narrating a story about a necklace of the baroness, which was lost and then found in the garden.
The following world-known persons were among the owners of this dinnerware: the Kennedy family, the Emperor of Japan, the Sultan of Brunei, the King of Thailand, and many aristocratic families from various countries.
Today, the products of the manufactory are exhibited in museums and private collections, and the brand is known as an international chinaware brand.
