Until the beginning of the 19th century, tea was a popular drink in the United Kingdom at any time of day. One afternoon, after recovering from a sudden bout of weakness with a cup of tea and some biscuits, the seventh Duchess of Bedford began the habit of inviting her friends for a cup of this delicious refreshment at five in the afternoon. The custom soon caught on among the upper classes and so one of the main challenges for Lladro artists was to reproduce the refinement of this bucolic scene which reflects the unhurried pace of this special moment.

The key to the realism and beauty ofthe Lladro Tea In The Garden Figurine 01001759 undoubtedly lies in the stage setting, throwing a special spotlight on the main characters and the detailed decoration comprising around 300 flowers. Some of them are entwined around the arbor, posing a technical challenge for the experts at the workshop, particularly during the firing process. The costumes of the three ladies are profusely decorated with embroidery and lace, rounding off a scene with up to 70 different colors. The focus of our attention is the table covered with an embroidered tablecloth and the dainty little tea set, a plate of biscuits and a vase of flowers, as well as the fans two of the ladies hold in their hands. A unique moment captured thanks to the mastery of the best Lladro artists.
