Sardines

The Sardine collection by Bordallo Pinheiro results from a collaboration between the Earthenware Factory of Caldas da Rainha, founded in 1884 by Raphael Bordallo Pinheiro, and EGEAC/Municipality of Lisbon.

The original Bordallo Pinheiro’s Sardine, due to its classic three-dimensional nature, became the ideal support for receiving the creative work that the “Festas de Lisboa/EGEAC” (Lisbon Festivities) have been developing since 2003, which granted the Sardine the status of icon of the city.

In 2015 the collection comprises 40 sardines: 25 from the EGEAC estate, 14 by Portuguese and foreign guest artists and the original one. One of them is a numbered edition of 75 examples! The composition of the Sardine by Bordallo Pinheiro is reviewed annually, with the introduction of new illustrations and the discontinuation of others.

Each year will thus be an unique opportunity to purchase some of these models.

Sardine - Very Typical Madonna

Madonna, always young, so girlie, the queen of pop, and always in Vogue. Global stardom was not enough for her, and that’s why now queen of Lisbon and of the smokiest sardines. Madonna is a top sardine, irreverent, sexy, sparkling, and she is now part of Portugal and what this country has to offer the world. Madonna or a good sardine – why not both in one?

Sardine - Pop Art

A sardine that reflects the contagious joy of the Popular Saints’ festivities, inspired by the work of Andy Warhol, who used bright and diverse colours to represent the impersonality of objects and celebrities, bringing art closer to everyday life.

Sardine - Emigrant

This Sardine was born from predominant topics in the news, such as the economic crisis and emigration. An analogy with airmail envelopes and messages that emigrants use to send to their families.

Sardine - Sardine Natural

The sardine, with its silvery blue and black hues, darker on the back and lighter on the sides and belly, is found in the northeast Atlantic and the Mediterranean Sea, where it dwells on coastal areas, between 25 and 100 meters deep. It undertakes migrations in large shoals that protect fish from predators during the day, in deeper waters, and move at night-time to shallower waters to feed on algae and small crustaceans. It reproduces from October to April, a time when sardines are leaner and not so tasty. The sardine is the most popular fish in summer festivals and fairs in Portugal, as well as the main species used in the Portuguese canning industry.

Sardine - Vader

“Vader” sardine would like to be a master of the force over the mind. Fan of one of the most charismatic characters of science fiction, whenever it can, it wears its disguise to fight against barbecues, sardine parties and other parties where it always ends up in corn bread... or on a plate! A sardine which wields the dark side of the force! Designer: Ana Gomes
