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 - Tóni

Tóni is a Sardine prone to gallantry, born as a tribute to the Lisbon hustler. A raunchy pushy sort, with a loud mouth and fire in his belly, Tón i makes a living out of odd jobs. Up one street, down an alleyway, he walks nimble, with a watchful thirsty eye, while distributing flirts to the girls that pass by – “Eh carapau” “hey mackerel!” Designer: Vera Valentim
