Lladró Porcelain Figurines was founded by Juan, José and Vicente Lladró. It is now an internationally famous Spanish porcelain company.
Heirs of the ancient tradition of porcelain, the Lladró brothers knew how to make this tradition their own and to bring a type of art that, up to then, had been reserved to a few much closer to people. In 1953, they quit their work at a tiles factory and built a Moorish kiln in the courtyard of their family home.
The business began in Almàssera, a little town on the outskirts of the Spanish city of Valencia.
Over two thousand people now work there, and their creations are exported to more than one hundred countries all around the world and sold in almost 4,000 points of sale.
