Looking to get your hands on gorgeous vintage ceramics for your home, or cash in on a historic Spanish figurine you own? At Featonby’s, we’ve helped customers buy and sell Lladró ornaments for a deserving price – and it’s not hard to see why these one-of-a-kind collectibles are eternally in such high demand.
The Lladró Company was founded in 1953 by three brothers who produced vases and jugs, with the business starting its life in Tavernes Blanques, Valencia, in Spain. In 1956, the brothers began to produce the now-seminal Lladró figurines and sculptures which they’re most popularly known for today.
In the late 1950s, Lladró devised a new firing technique that enabled the figurines to be processed using a single layer infused with pastel tones, rather than three. In 1970, the company introduced a new material knows as ‘gres’ – a ceramic paste made from natural clays, which is used in their larger figurines. Gres gives the figurines an earthy colour and matte finish that collectors are familiar with – meaning this is one of the defining characteristics that make Lladró ornaments so unique and valuable.
The Flowers of the Season series is one of Lladró’s greatest achievements. The figurines consisted of tiny, intricate bouquets that were individually hand-sculpted. These are extremely popular amongst collectors, as well as their nativity and biblical scenes, romantic wedding couples and the Don Quixote series.
On top of these iconic collections, Lladró also created a near-endless range of other stunning ornaments, including clowns, ballerinas, angels, swans and many other coveted figurines – meaning there are options galore when it comes to grabbing a slice of Spanish history that will transform your mantlepiece forever.
