American Goldfinches are likely attendees at any backyard buffet but an experienced host knows that these guests will attend a summer soiree en masse if sunflowers are on the menu. A favorite food of these avian acrobats, they can often be found hanging upside down in the pursuit of their beloved seeds. To fully capture the brilliant yellow that the males of the species display in the summer, the artists at Herend have used a sparkling gold fishnet with a yellow undercoat. Completing this happy scene are a cheery sunflower and a busy bee (goldfinches are vegetarians so these two happily coexist).
Queen Victoria dined on it, and Princess Diana delighted to it in her annual Christmas stocking. Now it’s time to savor a special Herend experience of your own.
In the 1870s Herend added meticulously-crafted figurines to its creations. Folk figurines commanded center stage until demand for Herend’s animal figurines gradually grew in the1930s. Herend’s trademark fishnet design – which is most popular in the U.S. -- originated in 1874 when an artist intrigued with a Chinese plate’s fish scale design painted it onto a rooster figurine’s breast to imitate feathers.
