A pair of cups created in Vienna, Austria in the early 19th century inspired the FODO (Oriental Vendors – Showmen) Pattern. Initially, the motifs on European porcelain pieces were copies of their Far-Eastern models, but , while the Characteristic Chinese and Japanese Motifs usually carried a Symbolic Meaning, the makers of their European counterparts used them purely for decorative purposes. This style, known as Chinoise, was widely used in art and design, and the set depicting Oriental characters is a stunning example. The rim of each snow-white piece, the cup, pot, sugar-bowl and milk-jug handles, the lid, knobs and the spouts of
the pots are Lavishly Gilded, and the dishes are adorned with Various combinations of six Chinese Figures, six Exotic Birds and Dragons and Plants in a Gold-Speckled background. As the most important porcelain supplier of the imperial court in the second half of the 19th century, the Herend Porcelain Manufactory was authorised by Emperor Franz Joseph to use the FODO Patterns of the Viennese Porcelain Factory it was closed down in 1864. However, Herend artists did not simply adopt these motifs, but reinterpreted and adjusted them to their own painting style, as evidenced by the FODO Pattern.

Dear Ms. Agnes Szegszardy-Sari, We have received the package, everything arrived safe and sound. Special thanks for the candies, "Mozart" is our family's favourite candies. These ones were particularly good, we had not tasted nothing like this before. We would also like to buy a cofee set but, unfortunately, because of contemporary economic situation, the devalorisation of rubble has happened and now it costs much more than it used to, so for we are taking a pause for now. BR,
