What is the difference between Lladro, Nao and Nadal figurines?

Many people have asked me what the difference is between Lladro, Nao and Nadal Figurines. The following information is provided a a resource to help you determine the difference, similarities and relationship between the three brands.

Lladro was created in 1953 by Juan, Vincente and Jose Lladro in Valencia Spain. Today Lladro is one of the most highly collected figurines. In 1953 lladro was hand made and hand designed and the tradition still continues today. Lladro is still made in Valencia Spain and is imported to countries world-wide.

NAO is a brand of the Lladró group, whose pieces are distinguished by the simplicity of their forms, lighthearted subject matters and colorful presentations. All NAO pieces are created by the team of sculptors at the City of Porcelain and are made at the company’s workshops in the town of Xirivella, in Valencia (Spain).
