LOVELY retired piece of Spanish porcelain of a Lady carrying a basket of flowers to the market.

Makers mark to the base, Porcelanas Miguel, Spanish.

Hard paste porcelain in the Lladro style.

The sculptor was Miguel Requena of Valencia, Spain.

We have no doubt that this is a discontinued or retired piece. It is from circa 1980 and is very rare !!

PORCELAIN: Porcelain is a ceramic material made by heating materials, generally including kaolin, in a kiln to temperatures between 1,200 and 1,400 °C (2,200 and 2,600 °F). The toughness, strength and translucence of porcelain, relative to other types of pottery, arises mainly from vitrification and the formation of the mineral mullite within the body at these high temperatures.

Porcelain derives its present name from the old Italian porcellana (cowrie shell) because of its resemblance to the translucent surface of the shell.[1] Porcelain can informally be referred to as china or fine china in some English-speaking countries, as China was the birthplace of porcelain making.[2] Properties associated with porcelain include low permeability and elasticity; considerable strength, hardness, toughness, whiteness, translucency and resonance; and a high resistance to chemical attack and thermal shock.

Porcelain has been described as being “completely vitrified, hard, impermeable (even before glazing), white or artificially coloured, translucent (except when of considerable thickness), and resonant.” However, the term porcelain lacks a universal definition and has “been applied in a very unsystematic fashion to substances of diverse kinds which have only certain surface-qualities in common”.
