Győr hosts Herend porcelain exhibit

Visitors will be able to take in the history and beauty of the almost 200-year-old company.

The Herend Porcelain Manufactory Ltd. has allowed nearly 400 Herend porcelain items to be displayed at the Triangle Gallery of the St. Ladislaus Visitor Center of the Diocese of Győr.

Opened on January 17, visitors to the exhibit have the opportunity to view the unique, handmade pieces in four rooms at the center. The first room has pieces related to the history of the company, the second shows sacred objects, and the third presents selected samples from the porcelain manufacturer. The fourth room then features a full dining table set with Herend porcelain.

On view are various Herend tableware, ornaments, statues, figurines, lamps, and some special items, such as an ornamental plate depicting Saint Ladislaus, a dish in the form of a grape leaf from 1847, a vase from the early 20th century and an Esterházy-patterned sugar shaker from the 1870s. The exhibit will also feature pieces with Apponyi, Rothschild and Victoria patterns.

Herend was founded in 1826 by Vince Stingl. The exhibit will be open until March 8.
