Hispania Vases and Centerpieces

The main production of the Hispania brand, before and after Lladró's acquisition of it, consisted of decorative and functional, non-figural housewares made in Hispania's non-porcelain ceramic. A number of plain and not particularly distinctive Hispania vases, centerpieces, planters, jardinieres, flowerpots were made under Lladró's tenure, most of which I feel would be of limited interest to collectors. Therefore, I list here only a few among the more interesting. Hispania also made a number of different "basket" centerpieces in various styles; I include here the two models most commonly seen. (Should there prove to be any interest among visitors to this site, I can post a separate page of all the basket models.)
