Sardinha mediterrânica - Bordallo Pinheiro

upon request
Bordallo Pinheiro



Troubled shores surround the calm waters.

With soft tones, unique designs and attention to detail: this is the Mediterranean Sardine.

One of the most symbolic sardines in the Bordallo Pinheiro's collection.
Between a sea of calm waters and agitated shores... shaken between life and death, between dream and nightmare...

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.

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.


design Silvano Mello
