Material: Porcelain

Brand: Lladró

Origin: Spain

Synonymous with fine Spanish porcelain, the Lladró name has been in the art collector’s vernacular since the 1950s. What began as a collaboration between brothers José and Vicente Lladró in Valencia, Spain, has since grown into an acclaimed multinational brand with a professional training school in Tavernes Blanques, a museum in New York, and permanent installation at the Hermitage in St. Petersburg. Its extensive catalog includes exquisite figurines, from religious icons to classic nudes to mythical and storied creatures, as well as larger-scale, more polished works.
