Apponyi, one Herend Porcelain Manufactory’s most renowned décors, was developed starting from the Fleur des Indes (Flowers of the Indies) décor. In the centre of the plate it is possible to see a motif in Chinese style: The Fleurs des Indes motif of a peony encompassed by leaves. A garland of stylized leaves runs all around the edge of the well and it is interrupted periodically by carved gilded rosettes. The ledge shows the contoured pattern of a flower surrounded by six leaves with a decoration of brilliant specks of gold.
The origin of this particular pattern can be traced back to Count Albert Apponyi, the original recipient of this simplified version of the Fleur des Indes. This pattern comes in several different shades, while the décor also comes in green. To paint, the artists at Herend also use shades such as purple, powder pink, green, orange, blue, yellow, lilac, maroon, black with gold lining, turquoise with a platinum thread or various combinations of colours.
