Spanish Porcelain Figurines
Lladro is famous for its fine Spanish porcelain figurines, and is one of the premium lines of collectible porcelains. Primarily known for their figurines, there is a lot more to the Lladro line to excite collectors.
Compared to some porcelain collectibles that go back to the thirteenth century, Lladro is a relative new-comer. The first Lladro pieces were produced as a “side-line” around 1953, and the first company produced pieces were made available in 1958.
Influenced by the designs of the early porcelain artists, the Lladro style developed into what is commonly referred to as “classic”, with flowing lines that portray gracefulness, and an attention to detail that almost brings these sculpted figurines to life.
The evolution of Lladro designs represents values all people can understand. Their figurines are an expression of the best moments in life. Each piece represents a universal story, whether it is a tradition or special moment, or even our dreams and fantasies.
One look and it is easy to see why their pieces were almost instantly propelled to the top of the porcelain collectibles market.
Retired Lladro figurines are already commanding top prices comparable to lines that are much older.
