Lladro A Retired Collection

Trying to find information on a retired Lladro Figurine?

Here is a question we get on a daily basis.
I have an older Lladro Figurine and would like more information on it. What should I do? Or, I am looking for a piece I saw years ago and always wished that I had purchased but now it is retired. How can I acquire it?

When you have been creating porcelain works of art for as long as Lladro has, you will build up an incredible array of sculptures. How would one go about finding information on a piece from years past? Once pieces retire and are no longer being made, where do you go to find out what they are worth?

Well don't fret because we have the answer. It's aretiredcollection.com of course!
This is an incredible site that has everything you need to know about retired Lladro from decades past. Whether you want to sell your Lladro collection or find that special piece you missed, this is where you should start. Janet Gale Hammer owns and operates A RETIRED COLLECTION, which specializes in the secondary market for retired Lladro figurines.

How Lladro Figurines Are Made

Hot Hot Hot - Lladro Figurines Trial By Fire

The door closes and suddenly its pitch black. Slowly the temperature begins to rise getting hotter and hotter. The heat increases until the outer glaze and porcelain body begin to fuse. At this very moment Lladro Porcelain becomes completely water proof and the fabulous colors are seared into the figurines. This is the "Trial By Fire" that every piece of Lladro must go through.

Lladro Porcelain History

How did Lladro Porcelain Figurines get started?

How did the number one line of figurines in the world get started? That's a great question. From quite humble beginnings, the three Lladro  brothers have risen to worldwide  acclaim. Starting in the early fifties with a small hand-built kiln in their backyard, the Lladro brothers began to shape the world of porcelain. Over the next six decades they have refined their creative processes and turned their passion into a true art form.

Lladro Introduces Balaji Lord Venkateshwara Figurine

Lladro has announced the release of Balaji Lord Venkateshwara Figurine 01002009. This incredible work of art stands out for its majestic and exuberant decoration, luxuriously covered with porcelain flowers. A combination of matte and glaze, finished with gold, platinum and metallic tones. Even more impressive is the dazzling floral decoration, made up of a total of 1,866 flowers that cover the side columns and the different garlands worn by the god. An impressive work carried out in meticulous detail, petal by petal, by Lladro artists. 

Lladro Balaji Lord Venkateshwara 01002009

Lord Balaji is a powerful god. Such is his strength and goodness that he is even capable of destroying the sins of mankind, which makes him the Lord of Miracles. He is also the protagonist of a beautiful love story, which makes him one of the most revered deities in India. The Lladro artists have represented Balaji, one of the forms adopted by Vishnu, in a limited series of High Porcelain, the brand’s maximum expression of beauty and technical perfection.

Lladro Balaji Lord Venkateshwara 01002009

Balaji married the mortal maiden Padmavati, the daughter of the king of the seven hills of Tirumala, but he must pay a huge sum for her. Until he settles the debt he must remain on Earth and cannot return to his heavenly abode. Thousands of pilgrims visit his temple in Tirumala every year and offer him donations to help him pay the commitment to his beloved's father. If the offerings are made with a pure heart, Balaji responds by fulfilling all their prayers.

Tirupati, the Home of Lord Balaji, has long been the destination of many newlywed couples who pray for a happy wedding just like that of Srinivasa and Padmavati.

The Goddess Sri Lakshmi 01009229 From Lladro

The Goddess Sri Lakshmi 01009229 From Lladro

In 2001 Lladro introduced their first limited edition Hindu figurine. While most of us in the U.S didn't seem to notice, this incredibly detailed sculpture sold out
almost overnight and left collectors worldwide scrambling to find one at any price. Over the last decade and a half Lladro has seen the demand for Hindu sculptures sky rocket. Every piece that has been released is extremely sought after and very difficult for Lladro retailers to keep in stock. Given the popularity of these past creations, the new Lladro Sri Lakshmi 01009229 is certain to be on many people's wishlist.

Lladro Sri Lakshmi Figurine 01009229

This new sculpture from Lladro depicts the Hindu goddess of wealth, fortune, and prosperity, both material and spiritual. Lakshmi is the wife and active energy of Lord Vishnu. Her four arms represent the four goals of life. Dharma, Kāma, Artha, and Moksha.

The Lladro Sri Lakshmi stands 8.75 inches tall and is 7 inches wide. She is bedecked in the finest clothing in red and blue, embroidered in gold. To underscore her divine status, she is shown with her crown and halo, as well as a garland of lotus flowers. This little treasure in porcelain, Goddess Sri Lakshmi is destined to preside homes all over the world and bless them with riches.

The Lladro Sri Lakshmi 01009229 is a new release for spring and is shipping to retail stores now. Don't delay, get yours today!

The Dawn Of A New Day, Lladro Has Been Sold To An Investment Group

The Dawn Of A New Day, Lladro Has Been Sold To An Investment Group

The only constant in life is change and that has now found it's way to Lladro Porcelain. After years of meandering sales, the Lladro family came to the conclusion that a new infusion of ideas and capital was needed to keep the now world famous brand relevant with today's consumers. After much debate and rumored family infighting the difficult decision was made to sell a 100% stake to PHI Industrial, an investment fund located in Madrid specializing in the rescue of family businesses.

How this will affect one of the greatest producers of porcelain the world has ever known remains to be seen.

LLADRO ELEVATES CHANDELIERS TO AN ART FORM

LLADRO ELEVATES CHANDELIERS TO AN ART FORM

A chandelier is considered by many to be the pinnacle of a well appointed home. From it's very inception chandeliers were functional status symbols that the average person could not afford. Over time the materials used to create them has changed dramatically.

The first chandeliers were created during the medieval ages and were simply two pieces of flat wood bound together in the middle with candles placed at the four corners. While this design was not costly to create, the candles themselves were quite expensive. Anyone who could burn four at a time simply to illuminate one area of a room must have been quite well off.

As time passed artists began to improve on this design and incorporated new materials into chandeliers construction. Ornate metal arms were added so that dozens of candles could be burned and even more light could be generated. In 1676 a British man using lead oxide created a new type of glass that was much easier to cut and was able to be produced in different colors. This was a major step forward and the wealthy flocked to acquire these new masterpieces of home decor. Over the next hundred years designers began to make their designs increasingly intricate adding more and more glass elements. This is when the traditional chandelier shape and look that we know today was solidified.

An interesting side note: During this time much of the lead glass was produced in England and eventually a tax was levied on it. So a company decided to move to Ireland in order to avoid paying the tax and stated a company. The name of that company....Waterford!

The next major change was started by Daniel Swarovski who patented a technique that allowed true lead crystal to be easily cut into various shapes. The glass of yesterday suddenly looked cloudy and dark next to the shiny faceted crystals that were being produced in new shapes and sizes.  The very wealthy had yet another way to separate themselves and show the world how successful they were.

Today Lladro has decided to elevate chandlers to the next level by taking traditional designs and replacing the crystals with fine Spanish hand crafted porcelain. This game changing idea creates chandlers that are unlike anything you have ever seen. Using varied colors and patterns Lladro Chandeliers are now the pinnacle of the well appointed home.
