Herend Soup Cups and Soup Plates
In the following article, we go through the most critical options related to the Herend soup plates and soup cups available for the customer.
The Herend place setting is composed of the following items:
- Soup plate
- Dinner plate
- Dessert plate
- Serving plate
- Bread and butter
- Salad plate
In later posts, we go through all the plates, but now let’s look at the soup plates.
Herend soup plates
We have two options: soup cups and soup plates.
There are multiple sizes of soup plates.
Smaller ones are only for soups, 3,5 [dL]. Larger volumes 7 [dL] – 1 [L] are designed for risotto or Italian pasta foods, chili beans.
Diameters and volumes:
- 21 [cm], 3,5 [dL] – Small soup, mainly used in the US.
- 23 [cm], 5 – 1,75 [dL]
- 25 [cm], 1 – 1,15 [L]
As you can see, multiple volumes are available for the same diameters. The larger volume versions do come with a higher edge.
Soup cups are manufactured in two main versions:
- with lid
- without lid
The versions with a lid are suitable for soups that have to be served hot. Such soups are, for example, broths.
The soup cup with a lid is designed to have a cover. Therefore the golden rim will not be damaged by the lid itself. The soup cup without a lid is designed to have no lid. You cannot order lids later for these models, as the golden edge would be damaged.
As the lid has a knob, you can order any Herend knob. We recommend selecting the knob by design. These are usually:
- Rose knob
- Bud knob
- Butterfly kob
The soup cup without a lid is used for cream soups.
Of course, this is decided by everybody’s own decision.
All the soup cups are available with one handle or two handles. This is a question of personal preference. Handles can help the consumer to drink the soup as well. However, a spoon is also an option, of course.
- 2,5 [dL]
- 3 [dL]
We will continue with other place-setting elements.

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.
