The Five Most Expensive Lladro Figurines Ever Sold

Lladro is a Spanish manufacturer of porcelain figurines as well as other kinds of porcelain artworks. For those who are curious, it started out making jugs and vases in the 1950s, but it wasn’t long before it started making its now famous figurines as well. Over time, the figurines have proven to be very popular, so much so that they have fueled Lladro’s expansion into something much more than its initial circumstances.

Here are five of the most expensive Lladro figurines ever sold:

5. The Fox Hunt – $6,500

As its name suggests, the Fox Hunt featured a collection of four mounted hunters surrounded by a number of eager hounds, setting out in pursuit of the eponymous fox. While the practice is now banned in England and Wales, the piece draws clear inspiration from said source, which is perhaps unsurprising considering that it remains a very iconic image in the popular culture of the west. Whatever the case, the Fox Hunt is quite valuable, seeing as how it has been known to sell for $6,500 on eBay. Considering the circumstances, it seems possible that said price will rise even higher in the the future, though time and time alone will tell whether this particular prediction comes true or not.

4. Flamenco Flair Woman – $7,720

Flamenco is something that will come to mind for a lot of people when they think of Spain. After all, it is an entire collection of related art forms that have managed to spread far beyond their homeland, as shown by the claim that there are more flamenco academies in Japan than in Spain itself. As a result, it is perhaps unsurprising to learn that the figurine of a flamenco dancer is one of the more valuable offerings from Lladro at $7,720. Some people might think that this is too much for a single piece of porcelain, but considering the vividness of the red as well as the gorgeous detail on the gorgeous traditional dress, it is well-deserved.

3. Cinderella’s Arrival – $57,200

Like A Grand Adventure, Cinderella’s Arrival is another piece that is better-described as being a “porcelain diorama” rather than a “porcelain figurine.” Its centerpiece consists of Cinderella stepping out of her enchanted carriage pulled by white horses, but there is also fantastic detail in the form of people looking on from a balcony. Suffice to say that Cinderella’s Arrival doesn’t need to share its display space with any other figurines, seeing as how it is a full-fledged display in and of itself. With that said, securing one of these isn’t going to be cheap, seeing as how Lladro lists a price of $57,200.

2. 18th Century Coach – $57,200

The 18th Century Coach is well, a porcelain piece based on a 18th century coach. While this might not sound particularly exciting, the piece has made with incredible detail, with example ranging from the four horses to the people on the coach itself. With that said, it should also be noted that the 18th Century Coach had a very small production run, meaning that there were never more than a small number of said piece available to interested individuals. Due to this, it is no wonder that the 18th Century Coach has a cost of something along the lines of $57,200 depending on the exact place where interested individuals choose to buy. Considering its limited nature, it seems safe to say that this price won’t be falling anytime soon, seeing as how the 18th Century Coach is likely to become rarer and thus more valuable as time passes rather than the other way around.

1. A Grand Adventure – $64,350

This figurine is one of the most expensive Lladro figurine ever created. For proof, look no further than its price listed on Lladro’s website, which is an astonishing $64,350. In part, this is because no more than 500 units were ever made, meaning that its price was bound to be high considering the pairing of high interest and limited supplies. However, it should also be noted that A Grand Adventure is much more complicated than what most people would imagine when the term “porcelain figurine” comes up. Instead, a more accurate term would be “porcelain diorama,” seeing as how it consists of an entire party of people standing by a train engine plus its attached train car.
