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 - Sardine Sour Cherry Liqueur

One day, in Lisbon, there was an old man preparing sour cherry liqueur in his kitchen. Then, a sardine entered a bottle of the homemade drink to eat a sour cherry.

Sardine - Unas South Bank

Comedian Rui Unas lives in the South Bank, across the river from Lisbon.
