Careful craftsmanship --from the stunning palette to the most minute detail -- defines Lladro's fine creations. The tiny bird and handled jar are just some of the delightful features that set this piece apart.
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.
