Vintage 1970's Brown Lladro Franciscan Monk W/ Original Blue Emblem (no Accent) For Sale
The history of this particular family piece:This elegant Lladro figurine of a Franciscan Monk was purchased in West Berlin, Germany, in the early 1970s at the U.S. Tempelhof Air Base PX. (there was no box)It was made by the Lladro Porcelain Factory in Valencia, Spain. Its sculptor was Salvador Debon.It has long been discontinued and very difficult to find. It stands almost 14 inches tall with a 5 inch base, and is in excellent condition.This is not a later version of model #2060, but rather, a much rarer original and does not have the #2060 on it.It has the original first blue emblem, or stamp, for Lladro, consisting of a bellflower and ancient chemical symbol on the base and the words "Hand Made in Spain".
There is what appears to be the capital letter A or H,and also what looks like a flower, impressed in the clay. This piece was also made before the accent over the "o" was added, again, adding to its rarity.
The information concerning the emblem was obtained
and shown at this Lladro Marks web page
An interesting side note:When it was shipped for its trip from Berlin, Germany to the United States almost thirty one years ago, part of the packing paper was from the U.S. Military Newspaper, "The stars and Stripes".It is dated November 4, 1978, further adding to its origin date.
When it was mailed home it was stored until this year, and has never been displayed. (please see photos below)Take this opportunity to acquire a true collectors piece of Lladro history for your own collection.
