Today we are pleased to offer for sale a fabulous Herend Queen Victoria porcelain covered dish!
The original set in this fabulous pattern, introduced in 1851 at the First World Exhibition in London, was purchased by Queen Victoria herself. Subsequently named for her, this Chinese-influenced pattern demands the skills of Herend’s most talented and experienced painters.
This delicate piece is beautifully crafted and detailed. The leaf/heart shaped jar features a domed lid with three dimensional branch encrusted with delicate porcelain roses. The piece is intricately hand-painted with a butterfly floral motif with celadon and gilt accents. Marked on the bottom “Herend”.
Dish presents well and is in good condition, with minor wear, scuffing, and patina commensurate with age. The yellow and pink rose on lid are both chipped. No other chips or cracks.
Dimensions: 5-1/8″ in length, 4-5/8″ in depth, 4-5/8″ in height
