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 - Super Zé

Zé Povinho is now a superhero. After having courageously faced the austerity policies, the interference of Troika and the corruption scandals, behold our Zé is still standing.

Designer: Ana Gomes

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
$49.00

Sardine - Lighthouse

Inspired by the numerous existing lighthouses along the Portuguese coast, this Sardine refers to the idea of travelling to a distant world, whether real or imaginary, as well as the eternal return home after its discovery. Designer: Ana Sofia Gonçalves

Sardine - Heroes of the Air

The Sardine belongs to the PEOPLE.... As do the memories of our History. In 2012, the Sardine aged and told a story about a feat accomplished with the sails of the Cross of Christ, the Heroes of the Air. Sacadura Cabral and Gago Coutinho greatly contributed to the History of aviation when crossing the South Atlantic by air in 1922. Designer: Miguel Amaral

Sardine - Espichel's Count

Being a bigwig of the Lisbon nobility of the 18th century, he has exquisite taste and language ticks, like “Oh la la!” or “Et, voilá!”, which he is always applying. He organizes the “Salon Musical et Littéraire”, receiving guests while reclined on a bed from the previous century, at the Chambre Bleu of his palace in Belém. Designer: Isabel Colher

Sardine - Santa Justa

It was just an anonymous and pale Sardine. It sought colour and participated in the “Festas de Lisboa” (Lisbon Festivities). As the event’s icon, it deserved a monumental illustration. So, I tried to create a symbiosis between the sardine and the Santa Justa Elevator. The Santa Justa Sardine, once anonymous and pale, now parades in colour and tradition. Designer: Frederico Lencastre
$49.00

Sardine - Tenório

The Tenório Sardine is a true portent of the Portuguese guitar. Known in the most exclusive world of Fado for being a bon vivant, irresistibly seductive and a confessed lover of the nightlife and “escabeche” (pickle), Tenório oozes charm through all of his scales. And no gilt-head bream, mullet or ray can resist his charms. Designer: Paulo Galindro
$49.00

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
$49.00

Sardinha - Mail

How long has it been since you last mailed a letter? This Sardine evokes the nostalgia of a gesture that we’re losing nowadays, while highlighting the importance of perpetuating our traditions. Designer: Ana Sofia Gonçalves
$49.00

Sardine - Tagus

The Tagus Sardine has the best view of Lisbon. From the river she sees the people, the roofs and the Castle; she sees the bridge and the boats, and the departures and returns that make the city live. She is a lucky Sardine – and, as Amália used to say, She has water, she knows how to swim / I wish I were a sardine. Designer: Sofia Fischer
$49.00

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
$395.00

Sardine - Saint Anthony

Patron symbol of Lisbon, St. Anthony brings in the lap the Child Jesus and bless marriages. Offers to the city a traditional party without rival, in which joy is adorned with sweet basil and the greatest figure is His Highness Dona Sardinha. Designer: Ana Gil e António Caetanio

Sardine - Condolences

The special coexistence between men and dogs for thousands of years has extended the concept of family. So, if we can often see humans mourning the death of dogs, let us not be surprised to see dogs mourning the death of men. Designer: World Press Cartoon
$49.00

Sardine - Submarine in yellow

In the year of the 50th anniversary of the Beatles’ album “Yellow Submarine”, it is only fair to pay tribute to it, using our greatest icon, which is also yellow: the electric streetcar number 28. More and more a symbol of how Lisbon has become a world city. Only these two made me like yellow! Designer: Alexandra Mendes
$49.00
