Herend Rothschild Bird Tea Saucer, No 5
First created in 1860 for the Rothschild family of Europe, the vibrant motif on this porcelain tea saucer references a 19th century tale about Baroness Rothschild, who lost her pearl necklace in the garden of her Vienna residence. Several days later it was found by her gardener, who saw birds playing with it in a tree. Each piece in this whimsical tableware collection from Herend features a different handpainted portrayal of the scene. 6" diam.
