Porcelain we're talking here chaps, not a huge fan of Lladro but this one is not bad. Sometimes this quality comes my way, but not very often, mostly it's swans and young ladies holding flowers looking all coy like...n stuff, pastle colours etc etc.
This would be a 1950s production.......something different.

Re: Lladro Group

do you know the etymolgy of the word "porcelain", a very interesting study of how the language actually evolves as opposed to those brainless, cover up a clanging solecism, answers "its a living language so getting it wrong is is ok ,ok?"

Re: Lladro Group

nobody interested in the origins of the word ...? it is actually interesting though sometimes, depending on the audience , empty a room.
porcelain [ˈpɔːslɪn -leɪn ˈpɔːsə-]
n
1. (Fine Arts & Visual Arts / Ceramics) a more or less translucent ceramic material, the principal ingredients being kaolin and petuntse (hard paste) or other clays, ground glassy substances, soapstone, bone ash, etc.
2. (Fine Arts & Visual Arts / Ceramics) an object made of this or such objects collectively
3. (Fine Arts & Visual Arts / Ceramics) (modifier) of, relating to, or made from this material a porcelain cup
[from French porcelaine, from Italian porcellana cowrie shell, porcelain (from its shell-like finish), literally: relating to a sow (from the resemblance between a cowrie shell and a sow's vulva), from porcella little sow, from porca sow, from Latin; see pork].

drive the porcelain bus:
Verb
Etymology
Humorous euphemism associating the position of the hands on a toilet seat while vomiting with holding a steering wheel.
