Herend Porcelain

Herend Porcelains in Korea

The Herend exhibition in Seoul and Daegu presents the luxurious life of Hungarian aristocracy in the 17th-19th centuries.

The Herend exhibition in Seoul and Daegu presents the luxurious life of Hungarian aristocracy in the 17th-19th centuries.

One of the highlights of the exhibition is a gorgeously laid table displaying an elegant dinner service ordered by Franz Joseph for the Royal Castle in Buda completed by silver accessories of Hungarian aristocratic families. The place setting has already become a favourite of Korean visitors since their dining culture is very different from that of Europe; hence it is “exotic” for them. The first exhibition venue is the National Palace Museum of Korea located next to the Gyeongbokgung Palace, Korea’s most visited historic building. The exhibition can be visited in the National Palace Museum of Korea until 9th March 2014, and then it is going to be moved to the Hengso Museum of Keimyung University in Daegu.
