The next cultural exhibition of the Herend Porcelain Manufactory was ceremonially opened, this time at the Széchenyi Zsigmond Carpathian Basin Hungarian Hunting Museum in Hatvan.
Adapted to the host location, the exhibition this time focused on the topics of hunting and nature selecting from Herend’s amazing product range. More than 100 Herend works of art worth more than 70 million forints are on display for a month in the ceremonial hall of the castle, which houses the museum. Among the exhibits are some limited bravura pieces that have so far rarely or not been seen by the general public. One of the highlights is a 90 cm diameter ornamental plate made with technical bravura, depicting artistically painted wild ducks on a lake shore. The highlight of the ceremonial hall is a table over 6 meters long, beautifully set with Herend porcelain, featuring wild animals and hunting patterned tablewares.
At the opening ceremony, guests were welcomed by Dr. Attila Simon, CEO of the Herend Porcelain Manufactory, and Dr. Tamás Ujváry, Managing Director of the Széchenyi Zsigmond Hunting Museum. They both emphasized the excellent cooperation between the two institutions, as it was not the first time that they embarked on a joint cultural project. The exhibition was opened by Péter Bajdik, Secretary-General of the Hungarian Hunters’ National Chamber. The opening ceremony was featured by the Horn Ensemble of the Hungarian Hunters’ National Chamber.
The unique Herend exhibition can be visited until August 8th.
