Bordallo Pinheiro


The Sardine with a lobster’ soul is a metaphor for life being our private ocean.
A place where we need to flow like a sardine and grow like a lobster to leave our comfort zone.
It is in the constant cycle of shedding and growing shells that we evolve to be more and more who we are.
It is not the sea that changes our way of sailing, it is our way of sailing which changes the sea.

A story, a sardine and a lobster.

Let yourself be dazzle by the beautiful and inspiring story of this piece, which can be the perfect gift for the message it carries.

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.
