The Lladro figurine catalogue will also introduce you to a special insurance against breakage which you can buy to protect your investment. If you buy the insurance you will automatically become a Lladro Company privileged member. Lladro figurines are produced in series options. The open series designs are made in unlimited production until a retirement year and are a less expensive way to own one of these fine objects. More valuable limited editions, where the total of pieces to be made is produced in a limited number with a specific date of issue. The certificate issued with the piece confirms that it is part of a limited edition. The third option is a numbered series piece which is available from an issue date to a retirement date, but numbered and comes with a numbered certificate. These figurines are part of a set run of production and once these designs have been sold that particular item is not made again. The value of these Llado restricted production series are, of course, greatly increased due to this 'strawberry effect' the calculated scarcity that these limited items are a, one and only, opportunity. Lladro figurine authenticity is easy to verify as the bottom of the figurine should have one of the Lladro logotypes printed on it which will confirm that this is a genuine Lladro piece. Illustrations of these logotypes can be found in the Lladro figurine catalogue.
