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.

Lladro And Marilyn Monroe

Lladro And Marilyn Monroe

ipstick to the widely known hair, Lladro have outdone themselves.

Marilyn Monroe is timeless. No one will ever forget her name, her hair, or her dress being blown upwards. She is known for her beauty, her intelligence, and her acting. Of course Lladro would design a piece based solely on her. After a couple of "Marilyn" pieces consisting of girls with their dresses blown upwards, they dedicated the perfect sculpture just for Marilyn. Her timeless beauty is now captured in the timeless style of Lladro Porcelain. The subtle glow porcelain gives translates beautifully to Marilyn's likeness. She's young, vivacious, and exciting once more.

Marilyn Monroe is internationally known, to the point where any one could identify her. But to anyone who doesn't know who Marilyn is, here is a short biography:

Born Norma Jeane Mortenson, Marilyn was a model, singer, American actress, and a major sex symbol. She starred in multiple successful motion pictures during the 1950s and early 1960s including Some Like It Hot (1959), The Seven Year Itch (1955), and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953).

Lladro Marilyn Monroe Figurine

The majority of her childhood was spent in foster homes, but Monroe started her career as a model. The modelling led to a film contract in 1946 with Twentieth Century-Fox. From there, she became an icon and a world wide sensation. Her last film was The Misfits (1961).

Her last years of life were spent ill with a plethora of personal problems and a reputation for being difficult to work with and for unreliability. She was ranked as the sixth-greated female star of all time by the American Film Institute and named No. 1 in FIlm's Sexiest Women of All Time by TV Guide Network.

The Lladro Kintaro And The Bear, 11th In The Classic Children's Tales Collection

The Lladro Kintaro And The Bear, 11th In The Classic Children's Tales Collection

We are very excited for the newest addition to the Lladro Classic Children's Tales! This sculpture is of Kintaro And The Bear 01008687, a folk hero from Japanese folklore.He is a child of superhuman strength and was raised by a hag on Mount Ashigara. He made friends with the animals on the mountain and became a loyal follower of Minamoto no Yorimitsu under a new name: Sakata no Kintoki. Kintaro is popularly known for capturing Shutendouji, a demonic terror of the region of Mount Ooe. Today, Kintaro is celebrated on Children's Day (May 5th), where Japanese parents decorate the room of their newborn son with Kintaro dolls in hopes it will help the child grow to be strong.

Kintaro's clothing consists of the classic red bib with a Chinese symbol for "gold" written on it and his battle axe, which is his only possession and a symbol for thunder. Lladro also included, however, a decorated vest, to imitate traditional Japanese embroidery.

Kintaro in Japanese translates to "Golden Boy." In order to follow the interpretation to porcelain, Lladro had to depict Kintaro's most recognizable symbols and distinctive features. The sculpture features the hero riding on a bear, who we believe is his friend. Animals were friends to Kintaro, but also messengers and mounts to ride upon. Some stories include him sumo wrestling with bears.

The Guest by Lladro, A Collection Of Unusual Characters

The Guest by Lladro, A Collection Of Unusual Characters

Lladro The Guest
When you think of Lladro you probably picture children playing, a mother holding an infant or even a graceful angel with delicate wings of beauty. Each of these are themes that Lladro has become known for over the last 60 years. But these are times of change and nothing shows this more than The Guest by Atelier Lladro. This new collection is redrawing the boundaries for a company that has never attempted something of this nature before.

Lladro The Guest Statue

By taking a basic form and daring cutting edge artists like Jamie Haydon, Tim Biksup and DevilRobots to create a distinctive personality for an original porcelain character, Lladro has embarked in a unique and often startling new direction. To say that theses pieces are not traditional Lladro is quite an understatement. But by embracing a modern and graphic concept, Lladro is blazing a new path into uncharted territory and garnering attention from a new breed of edgy collectors.
