Description

Royal Guard Sardine

The British Royal Guards have become an attractive tourist spot, likes monuments in the city centre.
Bordallo take this idea and turn his sardines into an atractive tourist spot!

Well guarded sardines

Inspired by the famous British Royal Guards, represented by their majestic poses, their instruments and the exuberance of their uniforms.

The sardines are made with high quality colors and decals, which allows them to have a very strong, intense and beautifull glow and color.
All the decorating process in each sardine is manual. The decoration is performed by decal process, which takes on average 10 minutes, producing only a few per day.

Each Bordallian sardine is wrapped in a original packaging to simulate a sheet of newspaper, in a throwback to the tradition of the sale of this fish in Lisbon, dating back to the XVIII century, between typical selling sayings, from the fishmongers.

Sardine by Bordallo

It results from the collaboration between the Ceramic Factory in Caldas da Rainha (Fábrica de Faianças), founded in 1884 by Raphael Bordallo Pinheiro and EGEAC.
The sardines produced in ceramic, created from the selected drawings of a vast existing heritage, joining in the original sardine from Raphael Bordallo Pinheiro.
