El Portal Porcelana

"For People Passionate About Spanish Porcelain"

NAO Catalog - Women with Animals, Birds, Butterflies, or Flowers

For the Women's categories, the distinction between an adolescent girl (some of whom are listed in the "Kids" section of the catalog) and a woman is somewhat arbitrary; the focus of the women's categories is primarily (though not exclusively) on women in elegant dress. This category has been very popular in Lladró's core collection, and a lot of this style were also made in NAO, with a spate of new ones issued in 1996-2001. Curiously, many of these NAO models of elegant ladies had short retail lives - though that hasn't stopped the company from issuing new models each year in this popular theme category. Several of these models are more than a foot tall.
