Lladro Ocean Beauty Figurine Mermaid 5785 For Sale

Lladro Ocean Beauty Figurine Mermaid 5785

Lladro "Ocean Beauty" Figurine

One of the pink decorations on back has been repaired.

Recent estate find. Measures approximately 9-7/8” tall.

I do not have the box.

One of the top pink decorations on the back has some sort of issue. When I first inspected the figurine, I simply thought this particular pink decoration was crude. The top of the pink is flattened – initially looking like a chip or flake, but it’s quite smooth and consistent, and it’s also somewhat isolated down the center – that is why I thought “oh, maker related crudeness” and moved on. However, after cleaning this area, I noticed a good deal of yellowish discoloration around the pink that is seemingly glue residue. I now have to assume this is a repair.

This pink decoration is definitely more crude than the others, and the blue ledge beneath it actually has a couple tiny pink specks that again would seem to be maker related. After studying the top area of this decor closely with a magnifying loupe and bright light, I just can’t help but think that I see glaze going over the flattened area – the same type of glaze that is atop the other pink decorations - or maybe it's just glue. I don't knowif it iswishful thinking or logic and reason, but a small part of me feels like there is at least a chance that this is all maker related.

Probably not.

I know that Lladro will use glue sometimes, such as the glue theyused to hold the shell in this mermaid's hand, but I can't imagine them doing anything this ridiculously crude. So it is best to definitively state that the pink decoration has indeed been repaired. Please offer appropriately.

I have included three photos of this imperfection. I have also included a close-up pic of a good pink decoration for comparative purposes, and as you can see - it's also crude with an opened line along the bottom edge, which is something that you will find with the third pink decoration as well (all clearly maker related).

The white flower directly beneath the fish has a petal with an approximate 2mm chip to the tip (quite inconspicuous, pictured above).

There is no other damage. Though clearly not perfect – this figurine is definitely ingreat condition.

When I shake the figure, I hear a small piece of porcelain rattling inside. This is a common maker related issue that was caused when the breathing hole on the underside was punched.

Some of the tighter or more delicate areas are a dusty.

This is one of those wonderful opportunities where the high buyer is going to save a lot of money, and still receive the same truly beautiful figurine that will certainly bring years of enjoyment to his or her home.

Please help me out by closely reviewing the pics to best judge what you are offerding on.
