This is one of Lladro"s finest moments. Lady of the East # 1488 has been retired since 1993 after only a 6 year run. Just this year she has commanded as much as $ 2000.00. Now read this carefully....as beautiful as she is, she is NOT perfect. Pic # 3 shows that she has an imperfection in her hair band. One of her hair sticks and part of the flower that holds it is missing. That being said, restoration is possible, and unless you are someone that collects full time you will know that the average admirer would probably not notice at first glance. She is still a fine piece that is being priced very fairly. You may choose to fix her, or angle her flaw....we all have flaws! Great chance for great art. Short auction so don't wait. Remember no one is perfect, including this "Lady of the East"
