When hearing the name “Herend”, people who appreciate beautiful things, immediately think of quality hand-made porcelain and have done so for the past 180 years.
In the beginning, the small scale manufactory only had a couple of employees and has now become the largest porcelain making company producing hand crafted china in the world today.
The product range of the Herend Porcelain Manufactory Ltd. encompasses over 15,000 different shapes and more than 4,000 patterns, providing unique opportunities for its customers.
Craftsmen create products in the traditional way; all work phases are done by hand and testify to an outstanding level of aesthetic quality.
The Formula 1 Hungarian Grand Prix 2007 marks the second occasion that the Herend Porcelain Manufactory has been asked to create the Winning Driver and Best Constructor prizes.
Although it is quite difficult to find common ground between speed, horsepower and traditional hand-made china, it is true to say that engineering accuracy is a unique activity in its field – relating precision and aiming to achieve the impossible, which are characteristics of the greatest, be they on the Formula 1 circuit or in the field of craftsmanship.
A success writes an eternal page in the golden book of sports and the winners receive everlasting value, in the form of a timeless and beautiful Herend trophy.
