the series is made at herend porcelain manufacture zrt. it is the most classical style ware in hungary and can be found in homes around the world,
including some royal palaces. the traditional shapes were adapted by hand from their original moulds. the typical style of patterns were hand-painted on the pieces
with gold highlights to further connect them with the original cup or plate. the glazed ceramics are fired to 1300 celsius and
come in a variety sizes from 12x4x2cm to 3x1x1cm.
