Ever since its founding in the 1950s and its subsequent, stellar rise to global prominence, collectors have been fascinated with the singular modeling and attention to detail in Lladro Spanish porcelain figurines. Eventually, collectors discovered that Lladro wasn't just one brand but several. At the same time, other companies began to sprout up all over Spain, particularly around Lladro's own region in Valencia, working "in the Lladro style" and hoping to catch a ride on the tailwinds of its popularity. This book is written to acquaint readers with retired figurines in all the Lladro and Lladro-affiliated brands and to help distinguish them from the work of other Spanish companies. The book features substantive chapters on the Lladro(r) "core brand," NAO by Lladro, Zaphir, Golden Memories, Rosal, and Hispania, complete with representative photos.

Since its founding in the early 1950s, the Spanish porcelain firm Lladró has attracted a large collector market. This book identifies all known Lladró figurine brand names, differentiates them from Spanish porcelain competitors, addresses some of the mysteries surrounding Lladró's production history, and makes the case for Lladró's right to a place among the most-esteemed names in the history of fine porcelain. In addition to analyzing known models, the book gives a tantalizing photographic glimpse of rare, prototypic, and one-of-a-kind models, including several not found in historical catalogs. Also included are pricing and value factors, the most-recent developments with the brand since its sale out of the family, and details on how to distinguish genuine pieces from Spain's several other companies working "in the Lladró style." More than 300 photos provide detailed visual reference.

Until it suspended major glass production in 2011, Fenton Art Glass was the oldest extant American glass company, having reached its centennial year in 2005. For more than a century, this family-owned business produced glass in an astonishing array of shapes and colors, including the figurines of various animals, birds, and butterflies featured in this book. Glass figurines have achieved iconic status in American culture, but the Fenton animals are not the delicate spun-glass creations of the famous Tennessee Williams play. They are a different kind of glass menagerie altogether! Heavy enough to use as paperweights, they serve as a canvas for colors and decoration ranging from the sublime to the whimsical. This book takes the reader on a tour of that amazing world of glass honoring the beasts, birds, and bugs that are so essential a part of our natural world and our human lives.

Although Fenton Art Glass was founded in 1905, well after the Victorian era, this family-owned business took much of its artistic inspiration from Victorian forms. Fenton often experimented, throughout its history, with more modernistic forms it thought would appeal to consumer tastes, but it is Fenton's Victorian shapes to which buyers have turned again and again, right up to the 21st century. This book explores one of those forms: the diminutive fairy lamp, used to light dark hallways in big houses before the advent of gaslight and electricity. The book's chapters contain many color photos with full caption descriptions as well as a production table at the end of the book. Readers will learn about the origin and history of the fairy lamp form in Victorian times; Fenton's late 20th century entry into fairy light production; and the many shapes, glass treatments, and glass decorations Fenton used to produce these popular and graceful candle lamps that it called "fairy lights."
