Lladró Medieval Porcelain Chess Set, circa 1990

Lladró Medieval Porcelain Chessmen, Set No. 6333. These elegant Medieval Chessmen were produced by the well-known and respected Spanish Porcelain Company, Lladró. This polychrome Porcelain chess set features a 5-1/4″ King with a 1-1/2″ diameter base. Each of the chessmen rests atop gray suede leather base pads. The underside of each of the chess pieces bears markings from the factory and the sculptor.

The Lladró Porcelain chessmen were modeled to represent typical Medieval characters in the Gothic manner. The Issue year for this series is prior to 2000. The sculptor is Juan Ignacio Aliena. Although the Lladró Medieval Porcelain Chess Set was created in the twenty-first century, these designs are influenced by the style of Europe’s Mannerist period (c. 1520–1600). The paintings of El Greco and other Spanish Mannerist artists featured people with characteristics typical of Lladró figurines. These Lladró Porcelain Chess pieces are housed in their original wooden storage chest with two drawers and a chessboard top.
