NAO Catalog - Decorative Items (Non-Figurine)

See Also Lamps

As in the regular Lladró collection, NAO features a number of decorative items that aren't "figurines" in the sense in which we normally think of figurals. I've even seen a painted earthen tile marked NAO, Made in Spain, though I haven't been able to confirm the identity! I include in this category the various series of figural swan bowls produced in the NAO brand (also listed under the "Birds" category).

L075 Cowboy Boot 1960s $10 $100-$125
Appears to be same model as core collection #332.13 "Boot." The shoe and boot models listed here on this page have all been found with NAO marks. It is known from an early Weil Ceramics catalog that a total of nine shoe models of various styles were made by the Lladró company, eight of which have been found with both marks. It is believed the ninth shoe model, a ballet slipper (#L077) will also be found with both marks.
