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 - 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
