Editor's Note

The Apponyi dinner collection combines Herend's historical high-quality craftsmanship with elegant, timeless design.

Commissioned in the latter half of the 19th Century by Count Albert Apponyi, Herend's 'Apponyi' still remains one of the most iconic porcelain dinner services in history. Each piece in the collection is beautifully handmade and hand-painted in Hungary to this day, adorned with intricate floral patterns and gracefully bending leaves surrounded by a stylised edge detailed in 24 karat gold.

A strikingly stylish design, arrange it with coloured glassware and coordinated pieces from the collection for a whimsical table setting when entertaining at home.

The Designer

Herend has been creating unique, hand-made and hand-painted pieces of luxury porcelain with unsurpassed craftsmanship and artistry for nearly 200 years.

The Herend manufactory, at the foot of Hungary’s Bakony Hills, was founded in 1826 by Vince Stingl. From 1839 under the direction of Mór Fischer de Farkasházy, Herend produced dinnerware replacement pieces for Europe's Royal families to complement their valuable porcelain patterns from the Far East.

Fischer's innovation and high standards for execution quickly placed Herend on the map, and soon the manufactory's artists began designing dinnerware patterns of their own. Some of these dinner services would go on to be exhibited internationally, including at both the Vienna Exhibition of 1845 and London's Great exhibition of 1851. 

Queen Victoria’s 1851 purchase of a large set for Windsor Castle was a milestone, and Herend was quickly required to produce unique designs for aristocrats throughout Europe.

Their best-known patterns are named after some of their most prestigious clients: Queen Victoria, Esterhazy, Batthyani, Rothschild and Apponyi.

Herend’s history of excellence continues today, and their exquisite hand-painted pieces have become heirlooms for generations to come.
