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, EGEAC (Lisbon’s Cultural and Animation municipal entity). And Lisbon’s City Council.

The original Bordallo Pinheiro’s Sardine, designed in the XIX century, due to its classic three-dimensional nature, became the ideal support for receiving the creative work that EGEAC develops since 2003, within Lisbon’s Festivities, which transformed the sardine, iconic fish of Portuguese culture and gastronomy, an international icon of the city and of Summer celebrations of the Portuguese capital.

 

Sardine - Cacilheira

The “Cacilheira” [Ferryboat] decided to recreate the connection between the two banks of the river Tagus. A whirlwind of going back and forth, on her trips to Trafaria to go to the beach, or in the daily rhythm to go to work between the port of Cacilhas and Cais do Sodré. That’s quite a river!
