Now to the stuff we all know - Herend was founded in 1839 by Moritz Fischer.

Mór Fischer, who had become owner of Herend only 12 years earlier, seized this enormous opportunity to gain international recognition.

After the death of Mór Fischer, the successes seemed to be waning, although Herend won a further expo gold medal in 1883 for pieces that had been made some years before.However, under Fischer's nephew, Jenõ Farkasházy Fischer, Herend's reputation was restored at the St Petersburg World Exposition of 1900.

Mór Fischer passed the leadership of the Herend Porcelain Manufactory to his sons in 1876, and returned with his son Dezsõ to Tata, where they ran a small porcelain workshop.His decision was influenced by the world crisis after the exchange crisis in Vienna, and as a result the refusal of claimed government loans.The Fischer brothers, who took an active part in the Manufactory' work already in their father's days - Leó and Sámuel in trades, Dezsõ and Zsigmond in economical matters, Géza as the expert of kilns and glazes, Vilmos and Béla at the painters' department - have reorganised the Manufactory under the leadership of Sámuel, and changed to the production of cheap, simple items instead of hand-painted artificial porcelain products.The success they accepted failed to come, thus they had to realise, that they have to continue their father's conception.In 1879 a national industrial exhibition was organised in Székesfehérvár, where Mór Fischer of Farkasházy appeared as an artist from Tata, his son Sámuel represented the Herend Porcelain Manufactory as the porcelain deliverer of the emperor's court, the others son Vilmos took part as a porcelain painter from Kolozsvár.

Mór Fischer, coming from a merchant family in Tata, got aquainted with Herend in the 1830-ies.At the beginning he supported financially Vince Stingl, who set up his ceramic workshop in Herend in 1826 with the intention - making high-quality porcelain through step by step experimentation - to start porcelain production in a country that had hardly any industry at the time.His venture in lack of enough financial support and professional resources failed.However, the workshop survived and his goal was attained by the new financial partner, and from 1840 sole propietor: Mór Fischer.
By that time, well over a century had passed since the first European porcelain manufactory was founded.Porcelain, during the Hungarian Age of Reform in the second quarter of the 19th century, was still a luxury, but it was no longer the preserve of aristocrats and merchant princes.Already it was entering the homes of the middle classes as well.Fischer, in modern terms, had to decide which market he should cater for.His choice was to concentrate on the most demanding and carefully, even artistically executed work.That decision was to bring the manufactory success for several decades to come.
Fischer represented QUALITY during his nearly four decades long properous work at Herend.

These translucent pictures on porcelain bring, out of the fine white shadow lines, likenesses of well-known figures (Einstein, Albert Schweitzer etc.) and the founders of the factory (Vince Stingl and Mór Fischer).

At the Great Exhibition in London in 1851, Mór Fischer chose to display the Maria Theresa plate, 90 cm in diameter.
...
Reviewing the exhibition, Falke remarked that Fischer 'finds inspiration by setting himself technical problems, solving them, and then placing before our eyes at each successive exhibition new enigmas to set experts thinking.'
...
That appreciative comment may have helped to decide Fischer about making another pierced ornamental vase with a cover, similar to the one he had shown at the Vienna Exposition.This work he presented in 1876 to Falke's museum, which was the forerunner of today's Museum für Angewandte Kunst (Applied Arts Museum) in Vienna.The vase has not been seen in Hungary since 1876.It returns for the exhibition to the building that housed the manufactory of Mór Fischer when it was made.
