Bordallo Pinheiro

Description

Through the air, it revolutionized air transport.
A reinterpretation of a classic of aviation - the Douglas DC-3, Dakota, has now arrive, across the sea, and in the form of a sardine.
The design is created by TAP Air Portugal and marks the 75th anniversary of the Portuguese airlines.

In the air, in the sea.

My name is Douglas DC-3, but I prefer to be called Dakota. I'm a classic of aviation, twin-engine, propeller driven. I was a pioneer at TAP and from the 1940s I connected Lisbon to Angola and Mozambique transporting passengers in comfort and safety. I am currently in the Air Museum. In the form of a sardine, I now honor the 75 years of the Portuguese airlines. Congratulations!

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.

design TAP

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.
