Bordallo Pinheiro


In the Portuguese language, sardines live in the sea, but also on one’s face (as the word also means freckles in Portuguese). There are those who have a school of sardines on their cheekbones. In Brazil, one can eat anything, especially one another. Cannibalism is an ancient tradition, existing before and after the discovery of Brazil by the Portuguese. Devour yourself, said Socrates, the football player. We like sardines and apples, especially with potatoes (which is what we also call the calf of the human leg).

This Sardine is so unique because of its story, with its light and smooth colors.

The Freckles, the Sardine.

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.

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.
