Featuring more than 600 color photographs and 2,000 listings, the 2nd edition of this full-color price and identification guide provides a comprehensive and beautiful look at Lladro porcelain, an elegant, romantic, hand crafted, fine porcelain instantly recognizable in its shades of blue, cream, gray, and brown. Peggy Whiteneck returns to provide names and serial numbers to help readers identify specific items in their collection; information on various marks which enables collectors to estimate the age of a piece and authenticate it; and information on what makes a given piece valuable in the secondary market. In addition to the 100 new photos and listings, this revised and updated guide features an index, organized by title and number, a new chapter on "un-catalogued Lladro," frequently asked questions, and much more.
