Here at The Lladro Figurines Blog we get a lot of questions about a myriad of things involving Lladro. One question that comes up quite often is how to box/unbox figurines. The thought of damaging a beautiful piece before it’s even out of the box is quite intimidating. But don’t fret because we have got you covered. Simply follow these tips and you will be able to tackle the toughest of pieces.
How do I unbox my Lladro Porcelain Figurine?
Lladro Figurine Boxing Tip 1: Take a picture.
With the advent of digital cameras and cell phones we all have quick access to a camera so why not use it. When you got to put everything back in the box you will have a visual aid that will show you exactly where everything was and how it should go back.
Lladro Figurine Boxing Tip 2: Follow The Instructions.
Most large pieces will have a printed set of instruction taped onto the inside box lid. This blueprint usually has a numbered sequence of steps that will guide you through the process. Just make sure you read them all first and follow them to the letter.
Lladro Figurine Boxing Tip 3: Take your time
We all have busy lives and most of us never seem to have enough time in the day to accomplish everything we set out to do. But now is not the moment to hurry. A few extra minutes now can be the difference between success and a call to a repair center.
Lladro Figurine Boxing Tip 4: Look Out For Flowers
When a Lladro Figurine is damaged 90% of the time it is a flower. Each floret is made by hand one petal at a time and then applied to the sculpture. While they are truly beautiful and help make Lladro Porcelain Figurines unique, they are also quite delicate and take special care to keep intact. So make a mental note of where the flowers are and make sure you don’t put any pressure on them!
Lladro Figurine Boxing Tip 5: Don’t Force It
Every Lladro Figurine comes in a box that was specifically created to fit it. Each part of the box was designed to protect the Lladro and insure that it arrives to your home in perfect condition. So if you are having to apply a lot of pressure then you are probably doing something wrong. Take a step back and give it some thought.
Lladro Figurines Boxing Tip 8: Put Everything Back The Way It Came
After you have successfully unboxed your Lladro Figurine it may be tempting to just throw all the packing haphazardly back into the box. While this may save you a few moments now it will probably cause you a problem down the road. At some point you may need to rebox your collection to move or clean. When you open a box and see a pile of packing, the chances you will remember exactly how it was originally is rather slim. So do yourself a favor and repack the box now. You will be glad you did!
