Lladro figurines are made from hard-paste porcelain for the most part. This sets them apart from many of the other ornaments that people are going to find today, which are often going to be made from other types of porcelain or ceramic. However, Lladro does create some ceramic art also, and there is a certain degree of overlap between the different methods and the different materials.
Many of the Lladro figurines that people are going to be able to find online and elsewhere will be nativity Lladro figurines. These have been popular among Lladro figurine fans for a long time. Spain has had a very Catholic and religious culture for a long time, so this isn’t surprising. Of course, nativity figurines are going to have an appealing seasonal quality that is going to be somewhat lacking for a good portion of other Lladro figurines.
Many of the other Lladro figurines that people are going to find are going to be much more romantic in nature. People should be able to easily find Lladro figurines that involve couples dancing and embracing. The Lladro ‘I Love You Truly’ figurine is of a couple dancing, and this is one of the most famous and class figurines that people are going to be able to find in this product range. It should run people around one thousand dollars, making it something of an investment for the people who have their eyes on the long-term value of the Lladro figurine collections.
The romantic quality of all of the different Lladro figurines and ornaments has made them perfect for many different occasions within the lives and marriages of real romantic couples. Many of them are going to want to give their significant others Lladro figurines for anniversaries and similar occasions, and there are many Lladro figurines that were specifically designed around that purpose.
The long and slender forms of the dancing couples have a tendency to work very well as ornaments. Lladro figurines create a very different impression compared to the squat and cherubic Hummel figurines that many people are also going to own if they are fans of ornaments like this. The Lladro figurines that people will have in their display cases next to the Hummel figurines are almost going to look like a different species.
Lladro figurines are usually mostly full of pale pastel shades. They lack the rich hues that are often given to Hummel figurines. Some Lladro figurines are going to be nearly entirely white. At any rate, the coloration for Lladro figurines is rarely going to be especially dramatic. Part of the appeal of these figurines is the subtlety involved and the gentle nature of the sculpted people. The figurines themselves are usually going to have very subtle facial features, with the women being very reminiscent of different statuettes and sculptures of the Virgin Mary in Catholic tradition, and the men looking like they have stepped out of the sort of Renaissance paintings that depicted young men with Classical features. Lladro figurines are graceful and gentle in shape, form, and color.
The Lladro figurines are often going to be divided between classic Lladro figurines and new Lladro figurines. Some of them are going to be more familiar than others. However, there really aren’t that many strong variations when it comes to Lladro figurines. These are figurines where gentleness is prized, and they aren’t supposed to challenge the senses. They’re supposed to be dainty, lovely, and soothing. The classic and the new Lladro figurines will all achieve that effect.
