Rare Lladró and Beatrix Potter Figurines Highlight Lion and Unicorn’s Upcoming AuctionJul 06, 2022 09:00 EDT
A long and narrow Venetian boat, the gondola is a celebrated symbol of the city of Venice. Tracing back to the 11th century, the rowing boat was a significant means of transport. Today, gondolas are a major tourist attraction, largely associated with romantic rides and exotic experiences. A porcelain figurine by Lladró, In The Gondola, is a key highlight of Lion and Unicorn’s upcoming Summer Decorative Arts & Collectibles auction. Crafted by artist Francisco Catala, the glossy piece depicts a young couple taking a gondola ride with a musician. The figurine has a backstamp of the Spanish brand on the bottom. Another notable Lladró piece is a figurine of football players in action. Shot On Goal by the 20th-century artist Fulgencio Garcia demonstrates the historic connection between the people of Spain and the game of football.
A Beatrix Potter figurine with a rare parallel line backstamp also leads the listings. It is based on the Tommy Brock character from children’s stories written and illustrated by Beatrix Potter. The depiction is inspired by the grumpy badger character, dressed in yellow pants, a pink vest, and a blue jacket. To view the complete catalog and register to bid online, visit Lion and Unicorn.
