This piece has had only one owner, was meticulously cared for, and remains in mint condition, with no chips or cracks. A few minimal glaze bumps are present, (smooth, undamaged), as represented in photo detail. While these are minor, and do not deter from the beauty of the piece, iI felt they should be mentioned, and have set the price with this in mind. This charming vintage pup would make a most wonderful wedding or housewarming gift, and for one with an affinity for this particular breed, a readily treasured keepsake to pass down.
At the time of this listing, December 2011, the current price range found for this piece on the secondary market, offered by authorized dealers of selected retired Lladro, falls between $640.00 and $1102.00. While this item may also be found on eBay or other venues, my research was focused on authorized Lladro dealers.
The item number, 01004642, with an alias of “4642G”, is indicative of the glazed finish. Lladro pieces are all handpainted, and various pieces will be offered in either glaze, matte, or gres finishes. I believe this particular piece was created in both glaze and matte finishes, though I am not certain.
Thank you for visiting Pear Tree Vintage!
