The story of the Herend Porcelain Manufactory and one of its founders, Mor Fischer, is deeply connected to the history of the Austro-Hungarian Court. The ceramist Mor Fischer was renowned nationally and internationally beginning the 1850s and when the Vienna porcelain Manufactory stopped its production in 1862, Herend customers increased. The court also allowed Fischer to use Vienna manufactory ornaments. The King Franz-Joseph was himself a fan of Henred porcelains; he ordered himself several pieces to the Manufactory, he made Mor Fischer a noble and the official supplier of the court in 1872. Among his orders, he chose a red Japanese kakiemon inspired service for his wife the Queen Elizabeth - Sissi. She loved nature and horse riding and she was very often in their royal residency of Gödöllő, received as a gift in 1867. Franz-Joseph offered her this Herend porcelain service for its personal use in this mansion, and that's how this service became famous thanks to Queen Elizabeth and took its name of Gödöllő.
