We ‘dare you to try and find one them online ……………let alone a PAIR !!
Lladro is a ‘fine hard paste porcelain made in Valencia, Spain and the production method is a highly prized secret…..not unlike Col. Saunder’s Recipe !!
Lladro is WORLD FAMOUS for producing some of the finest and most collectible porcelain currently being made anywhere in the World.
Collectors of Lladro are counted in their Millions !!
These two vases were produced and sold individually and were titled “Mandarin Vase”.
They were sculpted by Julio Fernandez and were in production from 1973 to 1981.
In 1981 they were ‘retired’ and production stopped……..you CANNOT BUY THESE ANYMORE !!!
Based on their RARITY we think only a small number were actually produced as they simply NEVER APPEAR ON THE MARKET !!!
“Mandarin Vase’ started production by Lladro in 1973 and are renowned as their finest vases ever produced……..they are most impressive and statement pieces.
Around the same time, Lladro produced two figurines of a Chinese Nobleman and Noblewoman which were produced in very small numbers and the mould was destroyed when production stopped in 1978. These two figurines are HIGHLY sought after………………….AND WE HAVE A PAIR !!! (Check them out in this Section !)
We believe that these vases were similarly produced in limited numbers as part of the same series of Chinese style Lladro wares.
Each of these ‘Mandarin Vases” is marked……………one is No. 4………………….meaning it was the 4th piece EVER produced ……………...No. 11..……….meaning it was the 11th piece ever produced …………..that makes them one of the very early one’s produced and they were sculpted, decorated and signed by the ORIGINAL ARTIST……..Julio Fernandez………they are both initialed by the artist !! This SIGNIFICANTLY adds to the value of the piece !
We are of the opinion that these were made circa 1973….in the first run of this vase…..they are early numbers and the original owner collected her extensive Lladro Collection in the 1970’s and early 1980’s.
Lladro Porcelain “Mandarin Vase”, depicts a Chinese Nobleman, flanked on either side by 2 handmaidens, one holding flowers and the other releasing a Dove. They are all situated under a Blossom Tree with a kneeling bench to the foreground.
Both vases sit on a later wooden Chinese style plinth with individual silver label.
THE VASES ARE BEING SOLD AS A PAIR !!!!!
It is EXTREMELY difficult if not IMPOSSIBLE to find one of these….let alone the PAIR !!
