The Herend Porcelain Company has had a special relationship with the British Royal family ever since Queen Victoria found their excellent hand painted porcelain, when visiting the Great Exhibition of 1851 in London.
Since then, the Queen Victoria butterfly and floral pattern has grown to be a Herend hallmark design and enjoyed by a number of Royal Family generations.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were presented in April 2011 with a Herend dining-service in a contemporary version of Victoria Enamel, the first Victoria pattern. The essentials of the original unique pattern continued, but in a simplified form and in fresh soft pastel colours, more appropriate for a younger audience.
Herend has now produced an extremely collectable baby collection, to commemorate the upcoming joyful event – the birth of a new Royal generation:
The table set consists of a bowl, cup and plate priced at £228.
A Fairy Tooth Box at £62.70.
A Baby Shoe – £43.70.
All of the pieces come gift boxed and are limited to just 2013 items.
The new items will all be inscribed on the bottom, (except the Fairy Tooth Box – inside), in blue to celebrate the Royal baby’s birth, as well as the date.
The Hungarian president will present the whole set to the Royal couple.
The set, shoe and tooth box will be stocked by Herend stockists:
Thomas Goode, Fortnum & Mason, Herend shop in London plus Goviers in Sidmouth.
