Fine china sets
Short after its introduction the new décor became popular among porcelain enthusiasts. The EVICT décor’s new name is Royal Garden. It is painted on pots and plates in different sizes, and available in tea, coffee and dinner sets.
Herend Porcelain as a Royal Gift
Nothing proves better the popularity of the new pattern than the fact a 45-piece Royal Garden-décor Herend dinner set was given to Prince William and Princess Catherine as a wedding gift by the state of Hungary on the 29th of April, 2011. The extraordinary gift was created by the experts of Herend Porcelain Manufacture. The date of the royal couple’s wedding was painted on the back of the pieces of the dinner set which makes them even more unique. The set was given to the couple by the Hungarian ambassador to the UK János Csák. The couple also got a letter from then President of Hungary Pál Schmitt stating that the gift is from the whole Hungarian nation since it is a part of their cultural heritage and a real hungaricum.
