A gorgeous celebration of a simpler time, this petite figurine is a perfect gift for a mother or a mother-to-be--or indeed, for anyone who appreciates the innocence of childhood. Given the esteem in which Lladró porcelain figurines are held, it’s a bit surprising to learn that brothers Juan, José, and Vicente Lladró only began creating their impeccably detailed collectibles in 1953. In the tradition of past porcelain artists such as Meissen, Sèvres, and Capodimonte, each Lladró piece is meticulously crafted by hand in Valencia, Spain, by a dedicated team of artisans, including painters, ornamentalists, and even flower specialists. The resulting figurines are instantly identifiable by their distinctive sleek finish, graceful compositions, and impressive attention to nuance.
