The following is a brief summary, what you have to know in order to order a Herend porcelain dinner set.
The first famous dinner set was ordered by Queen Victoria in 1851 at the World Fair. Intrestingly she did not lay the table with Herend plates for diplomats, but only for family.
In 2018 November, we had the honour to organise a Herend Exhibition in Vienna. Many of our customers and visitors did not have a chance to visit this event. We decided to share this experience with you now, through this article.
