In the spirit of the Herend Porcelain Manufactory’s social engagement
The Herend Porcelain Manufactory inaugurates two exclusive public works of art of impressive size and design in the renewed József nádor tér in Budapest and in Veszprém.
In honour of the 190th anniversary of the founding of the Herend Porcelain Manufactory, a gift to the Hungarian Nation, a beautifully executed, unique ornamental vase painted with the portrait of Ferenc Liszt and the building of the Academy of Music Budapest, is placed in the building of the Academy of Music Budapest.
A huge vase was made in honour of the upcoming Hungarian Presidency. The vase stands one-metre high, and weighs nearly 25 kilograms. Amongst the Victoria décor's green flowers and butterflies, excerpts from European Union member states' national anthems can be read.
In 1839, Scottish blacksmith Kirkpatrick Macmillan invented the first bicycle with pedals. His clever machine was moved by pedal arms. In 1842, Macmillan rode on it to Glasgow and back, reaching an average speed of 13 km/hour on one stretch of the 226-kilometre distance.
