Garrido was drawn to works from different periods and diverse origin, and in all cases his interpretations entail variants with regard to the original models. Among other prominent works and artisans we can mention the fifteenth-century sets of wash-stands from Italy, Germany and the Low Countries, the sixteenth and seventeenth-century virginal goblets from Germany, jars and pitchers from the early French Rococo, large soup tureens in the style of those made in France or by the Englishman Paul Storr, wash-basins along the lines of those of Auguste or Odiot or of those made in Spain, chocolate servers made in Madrid, Cordobese candelabra, censers from Santiago de Compostela and Neoclassical inkstands in the style of Antonio Martínez. Yet these are but a few examples cited fortuitously and from memory, for the catalogue of works created by Garrido is vast and impossible to exhaust in a few lines .
