We have Queen Victoria to thank for the unparalleled beauty of Herend dinnerware; she ordered a large set for use at Windsor Castle in 1851, and the talented artists named the pattern after her. From there, Herend began producing fine porcelain dinnerware designed and crafted by true artists and designers, inspired by the taste of royals and aristocrats throughout Europe.
Each timeless Herend piece is made of durable hard paste porcelain (called "white gold" by collectors the world over) and is dishwasher safe. You can be sure that not only is Herend porcelain an investment in fine art dinnerware, but it is made to be used and enjoyed for generations.
Herend dinnerware patterns are never discontinued, so you can be sure that the pieces you buy today will still be available years in the future. In addition, each piece is hand-painted to be uniquely yours; you may even choose to personalize your selections with hand-painted 24-kt gold monogram.
The variety and versatility of Herend dinnerware patterns encourages mixing and matching for your perfect place setting; it's no wonder why Herend is the dinnerware choice for royalty and celebrities who admire quality and beauty.
