Offered for sale is a lovely pair of figures by the famous Hungarian factory Hollohaza. They are modeled as a boy and girl in traditional folk dress. Absolutely charming. The boy measures 185mm in height and the girl 170mm. Hollohaza porcelain is one of the oldest porcelain manufactory in Europe and it is the oldest in Hungary, dating back to 1777. The factory just recently celebrated its 240th year in business, still on the original site in rural Northeastern Hungary amid lush forests and rolling hills. In the beginning, they only made rudimentary, although visually appealing glass cups, bottles and dishes. At the dawn of the 19th century, the glass industry has flourished. However, the main transport routes and the raw materials needed to manufacture glass were far from the factory site. So, the owner of the factory, Count Karolyi decided to turn it into a ceramic manufactory in 1831, using the kaolin clay found nearby.
