Herend Porcelain

Angéla Rankl

Angéla Rankl was born on 17th October 1953 in Úrkút.

After leaving school, she opted for the arts and enrolled as a painter trainee in the

Herend school in 1968. She graduated as a skilled porcelain painter in 1971.

She started working at the men’s painting studio of the Herend Porcelain Manufactory, where she painted fruit décors. She later went on to master drawn patterns such as the Waldstein or the MP Persian miniatures. She was particularly fond of the latter, which also served as the examination piece for her master’s exam.


In recognition of her professional work she appeared on the honours list as an "Young Worker of Excellence”. In 1990 she was appointed supervisor of the skilled workers’ painting studio as well as the special works studios, which she has been managing superbly ever since. Starting from the same year, she has represented the Herend Porcelain Manufactory abroad on a number of occasions.

Painting is her hobby as well as her work. She also enjoys gardening.

She lives in her native town of Úrkút to this very day.
