The fine Spanish porcelain that has captivated collectors for nearly half a century is still working its charm at The Gift Room in Remuera
In a fast-paced world, it's good to know that some things remain unchanged. The enduring appeal of fine china is a good example.
The Gift Room - The Lladró Gallery was recently extended to accommodate the Lladró corporate image and display more of the fine porcelain figurines that are still sought after by collectors the world over.
Proprietor Nelson Choi says interest in Lladró porcelain has grown continuously over the past 50 years.
"A large part of the appeal is the design, which captures individual expressions so perfectly. Each item is handcrafted to display tremendous attention to detail."
Another reason for the continuing popularity of the Spanish porcelain is that Lladró items can hold or even increase their value over the years, says Nelson Choi.
"Whether you are seriously collecting or acquiring a single piece, Lladró is an investment. Along with producing Limited Editions, Lladró retires a portion of its range every year. The value of those items can increase significantly. In addition, the prices we can now offer are very competitive in the world market."
Nelson Choi says the store displays the largest Lladró collection in Australasia. It also showcases Swarovski crystal.
