Herend Grizzly Bear & Baby figure

Posted by Schiffman's at 10:00:30 AM in Herend (42)

If you collect bear figurines or any other adorable animal figurines for that matter, you’ll just love this Herend grizzly bear and baby figurine. In case you’re not too familiar with grizzly bears, they’re bears from North America who got their name from Lewis & Clark. They’re mostly dark brown, but often they can be black or light brown as well.

And, if your collecting passion is Herend figurines, you’ll find them shaped like everything from frogs to unicorns and everything in-between. The Herend Porcelain Manufactory specializes in porcelain that is hand-painted and gilded. It was founded in 1826 in the Hungarian town of Herend. Many of Herend’s classic patterns remain in production today.

This particular figurine shows a grizzly bear and her baby. They are the perfect figure of motherly love and dependence by a baby even in the wild. The artists at Herend properly reflect the complexity of a grizzly bear's furry coat with their fishnet painting technique. It features drops of gold that are truly dramatic when added to the bear's rolling fishnet in warm shades of rust and brown. Her little baby bear looks just like her only in miniature with only a slight hint of his future coat coloring. This pair will make the perfect addition to any collection and deserves a special place in your heart and home.
