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 - Pessoana

Because it is of the Portuguese, father of broad seas, to want, to be able to simply:be nothing. And be someone in a sea of people. Be a person. Flood. Dry out. Cry. Float. Come up and dive in again. Be fished. Be gutted and survive: the whole sea, or the empty destroyed waterfront – The whole, or its nothing (In D. João Infante de Portugal, Message, Fernando Pessoa). Designer: Maria Miguel

Sardine - High Tide

The High Tide Sardine is an allusion to deep sea fishing, symbolizing both the lull and the storm that diminishes us. The whole of the sea inside of a sardine. Designer: Filipa Oliveira

Sardine - Queen

Sardine! The Queen! To promote the Sardine to Queen, giving her power and sovereignty, was one of the goals. Of hearts, because the heart is symbolically associated with love; in this case, for a city that smells of basil and is kissed by the Tagus.
