In particular, things oriental porcelain. This influence is present in the Black Dynasty wheel design, which consists of the use of Imperial Black and White coloring and is based on the creations of the famous'Japanese Dynasty of Porcelain Producers, the Kakiemons. The pattern was introduced to the Queen of Hungary in early 1850s.
A unique aspect of the saturated tones of the SD decor is that the pattern is applied with enamel colors. Enamel painting is an exacting process, in that, the density of enamel paint requires the application of many more layers than with normal paints, in order to create the rich pigmentation unique to enamel finishes.
It is a balancing act of beauty versus technical constraints. Because if only one of the layers is applied unevenly, it can effect the adherence of the paint to the piece and an overall uneven presentation of the product. This requires Herend to assign only their most skilled, knowledgeable, and technically competent artists to the finishing of these enameled figurines. The sheer attention to detail is very obvious, even to the casual observer. Since 1826, Herend has created timeless designs with unsurpassed craftsmanship and artistry.These exquisite treasures make lovely collectibles and heirlooms for generations to come.
