Herend Pineapple Porcelain Figurine Reserve Collection

 (Herend Pineapple Porcelain Figurine Reserve)
During colonial times, many communities consisted of small primitive settlements where the home was at the center of social life and visiting was the main source of entertainment and communication. Any well-heeled hostess of the day would try to impress her guests and reflect her family's social position by creating grand displays of food. Consisting of pyramids and pedestals of treats often drizzled in sugar and intertwined with flowers and porcelain figurines, the lady of the house would try to outdo her social rivals by offering her guests the most lavish welcome she could afford. Often, these lush displays were topped off by a pineapple. Considered a luxury at the time, pineapples were very scarce since they were difficult to cultivate domestically and often did not survive the long, ocean voyage. That combined with their natural shape made the pineapple the sought after crown on top of these extravagant spectacles. Colonial women were so desperate to have this exotic fruit as a guest at their table that middle-class women would often resort to renting it for the day; of course, this was a well-kept secret between merchant and mistress. Only the wealthiest of neighbors could afford to buy the pineapple outright and enjoy its sweet temptation.

Herend Gray Barred Owl Porcelain Figurine Reserve Collection

 (Herend Gray Barred Owl Porcelain Figurine Reserve)
Barred Owls have a very distinctive call which sounds like "who cooks for you" or the variation "who cooks for you all". It is said that if you imitate their call, a territorial Barred Owl may fly in to investigate further. Being close to one of these beauties would be a welcome occurrence (as long as you are not a small animal)- especially when painted Herend-style. From their soulful eyes to the multiple variations on painting a single feather, these figurines reflect the full breadth of Herend's creativity. Limited Edition of 150.

Herend Grizzly Bear and Baby Porcelain Figurine Reserve Collection

 (Herend Grizzly Bear and Baby Porcelain Figurine Reserve)
While this mother & baby are a North American subspecies of the brown bear, they are more commonly known as "grizzly" bears. As to the origin of their name, the bears can thank none other than Lewis & Clark whose journals mention a "grisley" bear no doubt referring to these majestic symbols of the wild whose grizzled appearance is caused by the long guard hairs on their backs and shoulders frequently having white tips. The fur of these bears is often dark brown but can vary from light brown to black. To properly reflect this vibrant, complex coat, the artists at Herend have developed a new fishnet painting technique featuring dramatic drops of gold on top of swatches of undulating shades of brown and rust fishnet. The baby is clearly a chip off the old block with hints of the mature coat colors yet to come. Limited Edition of 150.

Herend Blue Footed Booby Bird Porcelain Figurine Reserve Collection

 (Herend Blue Footed Booby Bird Porcelain Figurine Reserve)
He may have an unfortunate name but when blue-footed booby is dressed up Herend-style, this bird is nobody's fool! Even when they aren't sporting dramatic gold fishscale details, these marine birds are not lacking in confidence as anyone who has seen the male strut during his courtship ritual can attest to. The seduction consists of the male flaunting and raising up his blue feet and dancing to impress his future mate. The more vibrant the blue, the more impressed the female is. No doubt, Herends booby bird will surely be a favorite among the ladies this season. Limited Edition of 150.

Herend Lion Reserve Collection

 (Herend Lion Reserve)
From Europe to Africa and Asia, lions have been associated with strength, grace and nobility for thousands of years. Furthermore, it is their association with power that has led many different cultures to depict lions as sentinels standing guard at the entrances to revered places. Hungarian sculptors have continued this same tradition, and a tour around Budapest reveals numerous examples from the Hungarian Parliament building to the lions' gate entrance of the Royal Palace. However, the most prominent lions in Budapest are those flanking the city's famous and oft-photographed Chain Bridge. The first permanent connection between the Buda and Pest sides of the city (split by the Danube river), this suspension bridge (built in 1849) ignited the economic revival that would lead to Budapest's golden century. Guarding the historic bridge on both sides, the two pairs of stately lions were created in 1852 by Hungarian sculptor János Marschalkó. Fittingly, these sentinel lions remained intact (and on duty) when the rest of the bridge was destroyed in World War II (it was rebuilt in 1949).

Herend Elephant Reserve Collection

 (Herend Elephant Reserve)
Herend China Elephant Reserve Collection. This striking elephant is a replica of an antique figurine depicting an elephant carrying goods along the silk road. The silk road was an interconnected series of ancient trading routes stretching from China to the Mediterranean Sea. The silk road not only served as a means of moving precious commodities back and forth but was also significant for bringing new cultural influences. This Pink Elephant figurine certainly demonstrates this Eastern influence through its highly ornate decorative style including the dramatic rug on its back. The figurine was reissued from the Herend archives to commemorate the Manufacturers 180th anniversary.

Herend Medieval Dragon Porcelain Figurine Reserve Collection

 (Herend Medieval Dragon Porcelain Figurine Reserve)
From the writhing serpent like pattern to the crown of fire and horns of lightning the heat and drama of this medieval dragon seem to radiate off of the figurine. In this case, the artists at Herend have appropriately abandoned a subtle approach and have created a quivering, fuming dragon seemingly caught in the middle of some activity perhaps an imminent defensive strike with its powerful tail. However, with so many intense emotions on display, only a fool would say he did not see it coming.

Herend Elephant Porcelain Figurine Reserve Collection

 (Herend Elephant Porcelain Figurine Reserve)
As the elephant comes into view, the wavy heat radiating off the desert floor seems to be playing tricks with your eyes and making the elephant's normal coloration a fascinating mix of blues and grays. His ears, which help to control body temperature, are fluttering wildly and you aren't sure if it is the mid-day sun sitting directly overhead or a trick of the binoculars you are looking through but it is almost as if you can see the intensity of his body heat being released before your eyes. As the elephant shifts and turns, the vista returns to normal but for a fleeting moment you feel you had been upgraded to the secret, behind-the-scenes, technicolor tour.
