Up for sale is a LARGE Zaphir by LLadro Spanish Porcelain Boys Playing Cards Figurine. This recent estate sale find comes to you just as you see it in the many large photos given of this HUGE work of art. Since I can find no pricing guide that contains this piece I have no way to book price it or know if it is retired or not. The one thing that I do know is that this piece is LARGE!!! and weighs allot. It weighs 13lbs and is 12" tall by 12" wide and 8" deep. A LLadro piece this large would comand prices into the $3000 range and up. Being that this is a Zaphir by Jose Puche who produced the NAO models for LLadro the question begs is this priced the same as a LLadro branded piece. I am going to price this at what I consider a fair market value for the fine porcelain work of art that this is produced by an artist that works for LLadro. If anyone more knowledgable in Zaphir pieces has any more info on this particular piece I would like to hear from you. If you know the name of the piece or have a pricing guide that will shed more light please email me. There is no box or paperwork for this piece. It comes as you see it. It is in mint condition with NO CHIPS, CRACKS or REPAIRS. I included a photo of myself holding the piece so you can really get an idea of the size of this beautiful piece.
Update, this piece can be found in the LLADRO, NAO catalog Number 02000679. It was retired in 1992. Thank you to the member who sent this info.
What is a Zaphir LLadro piece worth: This question is always difficult to answer because relatively little is known among the collecting public about the Zaphir brand and its connection to Lladró. Valuation is complicated, then, by the need to educate the secondary market about the brand itself. Zaphir's creation by Jose Puche, a regular collection Lladró sculptor, as well as its chronlogical precedence over the NAO models that were later made from Zaphir models, should logically serve to enhance Zaphir's value over time as collectors become more familiar with it.
