Description

Tóni Sardine, Eh Carapau!

Tóni is a Sardine given to gallantry, born as a tribute to Lisbon hustler “fura-vidas”.
Charming, bold, vulgar and with “blood in the gills”, Tóni makes a living doing odd jobs.
Up and down the street, he lightly follows, with watchful eye, while distributing flirting quotes to the laddies passing by - Eh Carapau! (tradicional portuguese flirting quote)

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.

With a excellency design, it is perfect to embellish any place!

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.
