HISTORY OF Lladro
The company began with humble begginings, it emerged out of the experimentation and a curiosity of three men and a moorish furnace that they built themselves in 1953. These men Juan, Jose and Vincente Lladro would go on to create the City of Porcelain (opened on October 13, 1969) which employs over 1,000 people who collaberatively create and design each individual piece by hand. The crystaline finish and opaque tonallities can be attributed to the innovative process that reduced a three-layer firing to a one layer firing. Making Lladro a name that is considered synonomis with fine Spanish ceramics.
