Rare Lladro porcelain figurine, first period; giraffes

Why is it so special the Lladro porcelain figurine of this article? The figurine of the group of giraffes discuss in this article is very special, not only for the fact of been made in the first period of the company Lladro, so it is because it belongs to the privileged group of figurines under the list of pre-production. In addition, we can say, it is a porcelain figurine very difficult to find because of the low number of figurines that were performed. It is a figurine for authentic collectors. For lovers of rare and very antique figurines of Lladro. The motive of the porcelain or the degree of artistic level takes second place, because what really matters is to possess the rare piece, because having it means, to know, that you belong to the rare group of the world with the luck of owning a Very little treasure. Despite this, and although we are aware that technology has improved very significantly, in the fact to develop these porcelain figurines, the artistic level and manual of that time was very high level. What kind of mark does these porcelains have? The mark of these porcelains was not the typical blue print seal at the base; marks were printed on the bottom, with the Lladro name or by two vertical parallel lines intersected by other two horizontal parallel lines. Why Cocowif has many old, rare and retired figurines of porcelain Lladro? My father, Jesus Rojo, is the main reason. His hobby has always been to find and get porcelain figurines from the first time;  special figurines, the rarest. Thus, gradually, the collection began to grow and grow, getting specialized in retired  and first period figurines and being, actually, a world reference in the second hand market of figurines of lladro. The figurine, group of giraffes, reference number 1000113.06, was developed in 1958 and not long left to be performed, hence the shortage of this product. The uniqueness of this type of porcelain figurines, is the shortage of supply, the difficulty of finding them and also the beauty of the figurine of Lladro The economic value of these figurines is subjective, but the company Cocowif, try to give a value accordingly depending on the number of porcelains made, period, demand, economic situation and other factors. Do not hesitate to ask any topic related to retired or discontinued figurines of Lladro porcelain.

Who are the new designers of porcelain figurine of Lladro?

Who are the new designers of Lladro porcelain figurines? This new designers of Lladro, are the turning of the company in these hard economic times and difficulties.

Lladro new designers are eight young artists with revolutionary, original and fantastic ideas. Their names are Jaime Hayon, committee, Devilrobots, Paul Smith, Rolito, Bodo Sperlein, Tim Biskup and Gary basemen. What does the company Lladro try to achieve from these eight artists? This group is part of Atelier; This division has been created to break with the style of traditional porcelain and create a new style, a new concept and a new perception of the use of the porcelain. Furthermore, the idea is not just to innovate the style of Lladro porcelain figurines, but enter and give original touches in other parts of the decoration, lighting, bathrooms, etc. From my point of view, of the eight artists, the one with most successful for its originality and vision it has been, Jaime Hayon. The Spanish designer has created a groundbreaking Lladro porcelain figurines, full of fantasy and originality. Sperlein Bodo also has been a pioneer in the art of mixing plant and animal elements in objects and lighting decoration as elements for the table and jewelry.

What is the pre-production list of figurines of porcelain Lladro?

What is list of pre-production figurines of Lladro? The porcelains of figurines of Lladro that are included in the pre-production list are those that were developed in the first works of the three Lladro brothers. These figurines were performed in his workshop and were made and shaped in order to be sold at flea markets, for some order and especially for his own personal satisfaction. They were made in his first years of work; We are talking about half of the twentieth century, the late 1950s. These figurines of porcelain did not have a reference number. Some of these porcelains have been renumbered currently with a reference number, but most of these pieces are often numbered by the owner, with its own number. Our company Cocowif, for example, when we find a porcelain figurine from the first time, from the pre – production list, we usually set as reference number: SR followed by a number. Do this figurines have the same mark of Lladro in the bottom of the piece? No, the stamp printed in the Lladro porcelain figurines has evolved over the years. At that time the brand lladro were made with, either cross-lines or by the signature – name of Lladro, but written and engraved in the base of the porcelain figurine.  What is the value of porcelain figurines of Lladro belonging to the pre – production list? These porcelain figurines have a more difficult valuation than the others figurines of Lladro with reference, because they are unique and special. The company Lladro and other specialized companies in the retired market, as Cocowif, take care to give a value to these figurines of porcelain, so special. However, many of these porcelains are almost unique, so the value of these figurines is the one that the owner wants to say, depending on the attachment to the figurine of the owner. The company Cocowif, has in its collection more than 50 figurnines of porcelain Lladro, That neither the company Lladro has in its museums. In the picture attached in this blog, you can see one of the jewels of this pre – production list. This figurine of porcelain was made in 1958, it is a very special figurine, due to the beauty and styling in the performance of the cats. It is very hard to find figurine of Lladro, it is a real wonder, for true collectors of Lladro. Its value is 3,900 euros, perhaps it may seem exaggerated, but I want you to make you know, that is not a high price, as second market clients, have come to pay for porcelain figurines of this period and the same level of difficulty to locate them, higher quantities than 12,000 euros.

When you start to make any kind of collection, the most important thing is the control, order and a nice place to keep the objects. You should always, know how to locate the item, in our case, porcelain figurines of Lladro are the issues to be taken into account. Actually, technology is helping us a lot, using the technology to have inventoried our collection is very useful. A simple Excel, can serve us greatly to have the control. We can use each column to detect each of the most important characteristics of the porcelain figurine, and each row to set each of the figurines. Example: Artist Description reference Length Width Price Category #box …. In a collection of figurines of porcelain Lladro, especially for the most experienced collectors, the most important thing is to have a high number of ways to identify the porcelain. Let me explain; It is vital, to know how to locate the figurines of Lladro by number, by name, by the issue year, by the year of retirement of the porcelain, by size, by categories enclosing vital features as if it is a man, a woman , children, angels, animals, flowers, etc .; by subcategories as the state, if current or retirement, limited series; by porcelain finish etc. It is also very interesting to use a column to indicate the location of the box of the porcelain figurine. How can we put in order the boxes and the porcelain figurines of Lladro at home, store or office? The most difficult thing to perform this type of collections is to know how to place the boxes of Lladro. All Collector, especially Americans, love to keep the Lladro boxes. They keep them like gold. Even when they are buying porcelain figurines, first thing they ask to us, to make the deal, is if we keep the original box. And if you do not keep it, the operation is very complicated. Boxes of porcelain figurines of Lladro, do not have an uniform size, due to the different sizes and shapes of porcelain figurines, hence the difficulty of placing them, if our intention is to place them for example, by reference number. My advice, and it is the one, we maintain in our stores, is to make at least four types of placement, maintaining the reference number order, from lowest to highest. – Space reserved for small boxes of Lladro porcelain figure – Space reserved to medium boxes Lladro porcelain figure – Reserved for big boxes Lladro porcelain figurine Space – Space reserved for empty boxes (porcelain are supposed to be placed for decoration, somewhere)  set in order the best as possible by number, as I mentioned before.
