Lladro Estratos Small Vase (Burgundy) 5.5" x 4.75"
The Estratos collection is made up of vases, boxes and lamps whose central motif is the strata of the earth. The cubic shapes of the pieces contrast with the curved lines which evoke layers or strata and seem to envelop a luster-decorated center. It comes in two finishes, one in green and blue tones, the other in burgundy and pink. All the faces of the pieces feature a circle decorated in either golden luster in the green or platinum in the burgundy.
The apparently simple decoration is precisely the most complicated aspect. Special colors were required to achieve the flat ink effect on the surface. The inside of the pieces is also decorated, selecting a color contrasting with the outside. In addition, it is completely glazed, making it easy to clean when used as a flower vase.
