Studio: Herend

Design: Quuen Victoria Green

Country: Hungary

Size: L: 26.5 cm [10.4 inches], W: 21 cm [8.3 inches]

Details and Condition: Handpainted oval dish from Herend’s Queen Victoria Green collection. Marked with the Herend Stamp and the model number 221/VBO. The Queen Victoria collection is perhaps Herend’s most famous pattern and is made up of almost a hundred kinds of stylized butterflies and sprigs of blossom. A strong element of the decor is the peony, which derived from China before becoming one of the favourite motifs of early European porcelain. The combination of red, blue, purple, yellow and green butterflies, flowers, and sprigs makes a cavalcade of colour, surrounded by a gilt rim that stands for the green of a meadow. Herend’s Queen Victoria decor was presented at the World Exhibition in London in 1851. It was as awarded a gold medal and Queen Victoria ordered it for Windsor Castle. Founded in 1826, Herend is one of the world's largest ceramic factories, specializing in luxury hand painted and gilded porcelain. In the mid-19th century it was purveyor to the Habsburg Dynasty and aristocratic customers throughout Europe.
