NAO by Lladro

Contrary to a popular belief, Nao pieces are a line off of Lladro. Nao brand porcelains started life in 1967 under the name of Rosal. Which in turn was renamed Zaphir in 1975. Seeking to capitalize on this success, the brand was renamed Nao, which comes from the old sailing boats of the time of Columbus, and symbolizes a return journey to origins, conveying creativity, skill and magic in 1982.
