Vintage LLardo



Coloradolady ,http://colordolady.blogspot.com and her Vintage Thingies Thursday is here again.


This LLadro piece is very special to me. I would never in all my life be able to possess anything from this company. During 1970, my son was in the Navy doing a tour in Vietnam. During one of their weekends off, he toured Spain. While there, he bought me this and shipped it home. They were able to purchase things at a better price.

This is one of the nicest pieces I own. It is an LLadro, porcelain, hand made bird figurine.
It was issued in 1969 and retired 2008. It has small other markings: 3R, B/M, which I do not understand.

This is a photo that was listed on the internet. They had it priced $560. I can assure you mine did not cost that.

I am sure everytime you look at it you think of your son....how nice.

Pam said...

That is very pretty. I have some old bird figurines that were my MIL's. I'll have to check them out more carefully.

Keetha Denise Broyles said...

Such sweet birds, and even if you didn't PAY that for yours, they must still be WORTH that now!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Wow LV.... That porcelain bird figurine is fabulous... You are so lucky to have it. I know it must be very special to you. Thanks for sharing.
Hugs,
Betsy

Wow! And it really looks nice!

Maureen said...

It's beautiful. I love the soft gray color. Sometimes the lettering on the bottom tells you where there were made when a company has more than on manufacturing site. Not sure about this but....

Beautful LV. Birds are so wonderful. That price is astounding.

farmlady said...

How nice that your son sent this home for you. It's beautiful!
It took me years to learn how to pronounce "LLardo".... sounds much better the correct way in Spain.
Very sweet birds.
