Endearing animals meek and bold, large and small, demure and majestic eagerly await the chance to melt your heart and warm your home. Each is brought to life by the skilled hands of artisans crafting and painting these charming porcelain creatures. The famous fishnet decor adorning many of the animals took form in 1858 when a Herend painter became inspired by a fishscale design he saw on a Chinese porcelain plate and painted a similar pattern onto a rooster figurine to imitate feathers. The rest is history, with the fishnet design now a Herend signature prized worldwide. With the snow tempering all other sounds, only the wind can be heard whistling through the wide, open spaces that this snowy owl likes to call home.A patient hunter, this female or immature male (based on the markings) thinks nothing of spending hours perched on a fence post waiting for its next meal. Contrary to most of their cousins on the family tree, snowy owls are active during the day and take full advantage of the long days of an arctic summer to feed on lemmings, their favorite food, and other small mammals. While diminutive members of the animal kingdom would therefore not consider themselves a fan, there is much to admire in this new figurine from the artists at Herend.
From the owls catlike yellow eyes to its defining salt-and-pepper pattern created through alternating layers of gray and platinum fishnet, the snowy owl makes a dramatic debut as part of the Reserve Collection.
