The fact that this styled mark did not impress well may have been why it was changed to a back-stamp.
Cobalt Blue Nao back-stamp This Nao back-stamp was semi-authenticated by experienced porcelain collector Peggy Whiteneck at El Portal
The issue may be just a case of Nao’s official history and marks data being abbreviated on their site.
Here are some examples of other Nao marks and stamps taken from authenticated Nao pieces.
As with many porcelain makers and factories, many early production pieces are not marked.
The first Zaphir catalog was in 1978, and the Zaphir brand ceased existence in the early 1980’s, (which does correspond with the introduction of the first Nao factory stamp, but does not correspond to the official Nao version that Zaphir started in 1975).
The Zaphir factory mark was a stamped mark, and was only recorded as a stamped mark.
The timing of the first official Nao factory mark does seem to coincide with end of Zaphir porcelain figurines production, so perhaps the process was as Nao says – a renaming of the factory’s production.
It is thought that this design was in use from the mid to late 1980’s, all the way up to when it was designated as official in 1996, and replaced in 2003 with a more streamlined version that dropped the word “Lladro” from the stamp.
Unmarked Nao porcelain authentication It should be noted that while a recognizable stamp or mark can authenticate the origin and maker of a piece of collectible porcelain, the absence of a mark or stamp mean a piece is not authentic.

1980’s Nao Factory Back-stamp Mark Although very similar to the “official” 1982 Nao back-stamp, (shown above), this mark has a slightly different layout, (note the higher position of the word NAO), and is clearly dated 1978.
