Lladro – Handmade porcelain from Spain
In 1953 the Lladro brothers began to fire their first Lladro porcelain creations in a kiln
built in the backyard of their home in Almassera, a small town on the
outskirts of Valencia.
Now, sixty years on and still in close proximity to the original workshop,
stands The City of Porcelain, this is where all Lladro creations
are now made.
I really like Lladro porcelain, the figurines are beautiful and they have
a unique style. A few years ago I purchased a NAO figurine, she is a
young mermaid holding a shell with a pearl inside. NAO is a brand of
the Lladro group, their pieces are distinguished by the simplicity of their
forms. All NAO pieces are created by the team of sculptors at the
City of Porcelain in Xirivella, Valencia.
