The Lladro Porcelain company was founded in 1953 by three brothers, Juan, Jose and Vicente Lladro, in the village of Almassera near Valencia. Starting with items such as vases and jugs, it wasn't until 1956 that they started producing the sculptures for which they are now most famous. Enthusiasm for the items produced by the Lladro brothers saw their small workshop expand several times until eventually they moved to Tavernes Blanques in 1958.
Among their wide variety of quality sculptures are rare figurines portraying people with animals. This particular sculpture of an adorable Spaniel dog and a spilled pot of flowers was sculptured by Antonio Ramos for the Lladro Society; entitled "It Wasn't Me".
How could anyone be mad at this white and tan Spaniel, with that remorseful look on his face. He may say he didn't do it, but the evidence seems to prove otherwise. The dog is sitting along a large white flower pot which is lying on its side, plants with the lovely shaded pink and white blossoms spilling out unto the ground.
The figurine measures 4" in height and 4" in width. Stamped in dark blue with Society Circle Mark, Lladro "Bellflower" and "Lladro - Hand Made in Spain " and incised pattern number "7672". In the original box, There are no cracks, chips or repairs; one tiny white blossom has several petals missing (see photo). A darling Lladro sculpture
