3 sets of tea cups with saucers 734 two have small hairlines see pics 4, 5, 6. Is the name of a Hungarian company that produces fine porcelain. The Herend ceramics factory was founded in the early 1800s in the town of Herend and began producing fine china tableware and decorative pieces in the mid-1800s. One of its most famous coups was producing perfect replica replacement pieces for a Meissen china service owned by Count and Countess Esterhazy in 1844. Much of Herend's early production imitated work produced by the Meissen and Sevres factories elsewhere in Europe.Herend survived wars and changing economies, ownership, tastes and governments and continues production today. During the communist era, sales of Herend china to the West were an important source of hard currency for Hungary.
Today Herend employees own about 75% of the company's stock. This results in subtle variations in the decoration and a limited supply of china.Each piece is almost unique. And since supply of the china is limited by the number of pieces these artisans can produce by hand, there can be a wait of many months for the pieces a customer has ordered. Herend claims that no pattern is ever truly discontinued and that it stands ready to produce any of its patterns or pieces by special order.
