Lladró Easter collectibles are popular among those who love the decorative artwork produced by this Spanish company, which was founded in 1953 by three brothers (Juan, José, and Vicente) of that name. Much of their work features delicate pastel shades which make them all the more attractive. Much of it, too, is made of porcelain; the exact combination of materials is known only to a few people, and is a closely guarded secret. This article will discuss some of the Easter items that Lladró has produced over the course of its period in existence that qualify as collectibles.
Some Notable Lladró Easter Collectibles
The following items have been retired, so no new ones are being made. A variety of images are displayed—bunnies, eggs, children, and others. Lladró has traditionally put out one new egg per year.
• Easter Bonnets: This is a figurine of a pretty young woman or girl in an Easter bonnet, lavender blouse, a light grey skirt (hoopskirt?), and delicate pointed purple shoes. This young lass is carrying a large round pink box with a ribbon handle; a square box is at her feet. It is set on a round base.
• Easter Set: This includes a, a girl, and a basket. The three pieces of this set, which were made from 1986 to 1991, are delicately designed and colored. The two children are both dressed in bunny costumes, with the boy’s being blue and that of the girl being pink. The boy is in a squatting position while the girl is standing, and both are carrying flowers. The basket is made of blue and white straw and contains still more flowers. Each child has his own base. Their smiles and gestures convey the innocence of childhood. All three items have a glaze finish. This is an exceptionally cute grouping of Easter collectible figurines.
• Easter Bunnies: Lladró makes several Easter Bunny figurines. One of them depicts two white rabbits around a pink Easter egg. One of the Easter Bunnies is on its hind legs and appears to be embracing the Easter egg. The egg is decorated with purple flowers, slightly raised. The base has a raised leaf decoration on it.
• Easter Fantasy: This Lladró figurine shows a young boy in what looks like nineteenth century dress, riding in a small single- axle, rabbit- drawn chariot lavishly decorated with flowers. It is absolutely stunning.
• In 1995, a limited edition porcelain egg was made that is medium brown, showing a rural scene of horses frolicking through the countryside, with pigs and a farmhouse also present, all in relief. The piece was retired the year it was issued.
• The Lladró 1996 Easter egg depicts a family of deer in relief.
• Attentive Bunny with Flowers: Actually, this figurine has two bunnies, one on all fours and the other on its hind legs. Both of the bunnies are decorated with flowers
• Kid Bunny: This figurine was made in 1993. It is a figurine of a young boy in a rabbit costume standing on a three- leaved clover and holding an egg with a violet ribbon in one hand. This Lladró figurine is very rare.
Lladró Easter collectibles are truly beautiful collectibles that will add a wonderful sense of whimsy to any home or collection.
