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 - Self-Serving Grill

In Portuguese culture, sardines are practically always associated with the grill and both form an image that is part of the universe of any Portuguese person. Bordallo Pinheiro is an example in the creation of images associated with Portuguese popular culture. As such, I consider we had a debt to Portugal and to the world, since we did not include this iconic set of Portuguese culture in our manufacture universe. This set has crossed times; it saw the birth of the nation, and its look remained practically unchanged. And today, still, it is so timeless and contemporary that it could be suggested as a new image for the national flag. Viva Portugal! Viva Bordallo Pinheiro! Viva Isaque Pinheiro! And viva Sardines... grilled, of course! Designer: Isaque Pinheiro
