yet surrounded with an artistic aura. Each piece is hand painted by
Herend's talented artists to create romantic, stylish pieces that will
appear in your life and in your home as though they were always there.
Herend's Queen Victoria pattern is a replica of the collection purchased
by Queen Victoria herself in 1851, and is subsequently named for her.
