The company Lladro, in the beginning, had the ballet as a great inspiration, when developing their porcelain figurines.
Ballet dancers and any element of their clothing or environment had a great influence and was a strong point of inspiration for artisans.
You may ask what was the reason; Well, there is not other reason than the idea to try to capture the delicacy of the forms of movement and plasticity in the gestures of the dancers, in the figurines.
The subtlety and beauty of ballet and all that surrounds it, is one of the activities that most closely identified the philosophy of Lladro, when developing their Lladro figurines.
One aspect that has made the company Lladro successful, has been the delicacy and detail in representing the motives of porcelain figurines. The artisans devoted their passion in the art of making porcelain figurines, without neglecting any detail. The slightest gesture or expression of any part of the body was given utmost importance from the beginning.
The quality of the Lladro figurines is very high, due to the processes of review and tecquification of each of the figurines.
Any porcelain figurine that did not have adequate levels of quality or did not follow the required standards, was immediately rejected and removed from the manufacturing process.
Similarly, once the manufacturing of the figurines was finished, they had to pass another test of quality, which, if they were rejected, the seal was partially erased.
