herendSometimes I just come across an item in my research that I had absolutely no clue existed.

The Herend’s Fishnet Rabbit is one of them.

I have to be honest. I would have totally passed this item up.  But apparently, this is a very collectible porcelain item.  These rabbits sell between $50-$500 on Ebay.

Here is a bit of history about Herend’s porcelain from their website

…”In the 1850s Herend added meticulously-crafted figurines to its creations, with folk figurines commanding center stage in the early years. Herend’s trademark fishnet pattern, which is widely recognized and prized as Herend’s signature design, started in 1858 when an artist intrigued with a Chinese plate’s fish scale design painted it onto a rooster figurine to imitate feathers.

Black was the original fishnet color, followed by rust in 1870. Blue and green were added to the fishnet family in the 1950s, when the popularity of Herend’s fishnet figurines surged. Raspberry fishnet came on the scene in 1986, butterscotch in 1994 and chocolate in 2003 to add even more spice to the mix for Herend fanciers worldwide…”

It would definitely be beneficial to research “Herend fishnet” on Ebay for all the items made with this pattern.
