Retired Lladro ornaments are for sale on websites such as ARetiredCollection.com, The Collection Shop and GiftCollector. These ornaments are made from porcelain and include bells, balls, people and animals.
Lladro began in Valencia, Spain, in 1953 when three brothers, Juan, Jose and Vicente, started selling their handmade figurines. The company's products include figurines, ornaments, vases, accessories and other decorative items. Lladro items feature distinctive expressions, tiny details carved into the porcelain, individually made flowers and a glossy finish from the varnish crystallizing in the kiln. Each year, the company selects items from the catalog to retire to make room for new products.
