German Shepherd Very Rare Life Size Extremely Detailed By Hispania A Iiadro Co :
Here is a fantastic estate piece that would be very hard to find, especially in this pristine condition.Sitting about 34" tall and 26" wide, this life like German Shepherd almost looks real. For the serious collector of animal sculptures or IIadro owned pieces. This piece is dated 1983 and has been in a smoke free home since then, sitting next to the living room couch. Too fragile to ship, most be picked up or can arrange local delivery. Hispania was a company purchased by IIadro in the early 80s and I found some info (below) regarding the relationship between Hispania and IIadro. The statue itself, like I said, is in pristine condition, no nicks, chips, repairs or damage. It is very hard to find a piece like this, let alone like new. Finish is a very shiny glazed, don't think it's porcelain but I read perhaps bisque. Buyer will be extremely pleased. The family is open to reasonableoffers. Good Luck.
Hispania was more than just another brand; it was an actual company, one of several with which the budding Lladró brothers were associated beginning in the 1940s. (The brothers sold Hispania products, along with their own, in their first shop.) The Hispania company was founded in 1941 and was most noted for its production of earthenwares and majolica, primarily decorative items such as vases, frames, planters, and the like. After the Lladró brothers became successful, they bought out their old collaborator and tried to make a "go" of it throughout the decade of the 80s before closing it in 1989.
Reduced considerably for quick sale. Good
