  1. I totally fergotted lladro was ceramic. It’s been like 40 years since I saw that stuff in the Torrejon Air Base base exchange. Well, make that twenty plus years the last time I was there but by then, they weren’t really selling it. They also had Italian glass as well. They brought it in from Aviano in Italy. When we used to go to Benidorm, our favorite beach resort on the Mediterranean coast near Alicante and Valencia, the shops carried a lot of glass stuff including these passion meters. They were twisty glass things with a bulb at the bottom and a bulb at the top. They were filled with colored alcohol and when you held the base, the liquid would heat up and rise through the curley-cue to the top part. They were pretty cool. They had a lot of other glass stuff too including lladro, now that I think about it. We were over there 70-74, 82-85 and 88-91. My wife, Kim was there from 69-72 when I met her.
