The First Hungarian Applied Art Exhibition, the Vienna Exhibition in 1845, the London World Exhibition in 1851, the New York World Exhibition in 1853 and the Paris World Exhibition in 1855 brought the highest appreciation for Herend respectively. This appreciation appears in the order of several royal courts (Queen Victoria, Francis Joseph I., Maximillian, Mexican emperor etc.). The name of well-known patterns refer to the first customers (Queen Victoria, Esterházy, Batthyány, Rothschild, Apponyi). 1865 Francis Joseph I. gave noble title to Mór Fischer, appreciating his results and work in porcelain art. Since 1872 Mór Fischer Farkasházy, Purveyor to the Royal Court, was entitled to use the shapes and patterns of the Manufactory of Vienna, which had closed down. That was the first golden age of Herend.
