The Lladró story began back in 1953, when three brothers took a chance.
Juan, José and Vicente Lladró left their jobs in a local tile factory to build a small kiln in the courtyard of their family home, in Almácera, near Valencia, Spain. Their dream: to create porcelain; porcelain with a difference. Porcelain that speaks without words.
Today, the tiny Lladró workshop has expanded into a city – the City of Porcelain – where over two thousand Lladró employees work every day. Yet still, every Lladró piece is made and painted entirely by hand, with total commitment to quality, care…and, of course, art.
Every Lladró sculpture has its own story. Each piece speaks in its own, totally unique way. Maybe it’s the eyes, the colours, or the way it seems to say so much…without uttering even a single word. There’s something enchanting about Lladró. Which sculpture will draw you under its spell?
Life in the garden is such fun for a young boy. There are so many things to explore, flowers to pick and new friends to meet. And now there’s another friend that wants to meet you!
This “My Happy Friend” figurine from Lladró is an exquisitely detailed piece that will fill your heart with warmth and tenderness. The little farm boy depicted holds his basket of flowers and tips his hat to greet a bird that has joined him on his walk. A wonderful gift for the special friend in your
life, this figurine will be a lasting testament to true friendship.
