The Herend Baby elephant figurine is a pure example of the workmanship of Herend. It is small and cute, standing at only 7.6 cm and sitting on his hind legs, with gold accents in 24k gold and fishnet or fishscale pattern, the signature of Herend, and glazed in various colours that compliment the white in shades like light blue or black. The Herend baby elephant figurine is a hand painted sign of a definitive innocent and meek animal and with the gold hand painted on the elephants feet and trunk each figurine has an individual and unique look.
It is the quality of Herend which brings this figurine and others like it to life. Herend puts a lot of emphasis on its beautiful craftsmanship and has for many years. People wine and dine on the porcelain dish designs made by Herend. Queen Victoria of England certainly did, and the tradition was passed through the British Royal Family to Princess Diana.
Herend's rich legacy of craftsmanship has lived for many years after its founding in 1839, before Mor Fischer became the director and took it in a new direction. That direction has made Herend what it is today, and it now reaches various generations and has reached acclaim with its masterful techniques of crafting beautiful porcelain dubbed "White gold."
Thanks to Fischer, unique and visionary dinnerware replacement pieces for the various royal families of Europe were created in order to complement the porcelain patterns made in Germany and in the far east. But dinnerware pieces were not just what Fischer had in mind for Herend, though the 1851 commission made by Queen Victoria helped to shape Herend's future.
