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 - Mediterranean

This sardine dwells in a sea of calm waters, but with troubled shores. Troubled between life and death, between dreams and nightmares. Designer: Silvano Mello
$49.00

Sardine - Jeans

This sardine was inspired by the following concept: if you had to dress sardines for the city’s festivals, what would they look like? The answer is this suggestion, in which jeans dominate (with the details of the pockets’ seams defining its physiognomy), over fun, striped socks evoking Chapitô performing arts school and its neighborhood feel. Designer: Daniel Rodrigues
$49.00

Sardine - Taxi

A regular presence on the streets of big cities, the Taxi sardine is always ready to drive us to our destination. With different shapes and colors all over the world, here we made it black and green.

Sardine - Vader

“Vader” sardine would like to be a master of the force over the mind. Fan of one of the most charismatic characters of science fiction, whenever it can, it wears its disguise to fight against barbecues, sardine parties and other parties where it always ends up in corn bread... or on a plate! A sardine which wields the dark side of the force! Designer: Ana Gomes

Sardine - Pop Art

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. The glass changed shape and the bottle took the contours you can see. From that day on, the man decided to name his liquor in honor of the sardine and called it Ginjinha da Sardinha. Designer: Simone Dezaiacomo

Sardine - I Love Summer

This is a tribute to the beautiful Portuguese coast that allows for such good sunbathing, but above all to the lovingly peculiar Portuguese people – who love to sunbathe and go to the beach taking along everything you can possibly think of, filling the sand with all colors! Designer: Sandra Sofia Santos

Sardine - Unas South Bank

Comedian Rui Unas lives in the South Bank, across the river from Lisbon. Rumor says he experiences vertigo when approaching the bridge, and that you would have to carry him on a bier to make him set foot in the ferry to Lisbon. But he found a solution to the problem afflicting him. The statue of Christ the King gave him superpowers! Now he can use a Bordallo sardine and swim to Lisbon, or grow wings and fly there.

Like the smell of sardines, this cologne became the distinctive mark of my Portuguese identity. Designer: Rita Costa Pereira

Sardine - Doily

Wrapping the sardine in lace creates a strange beauty, which nevertheless has already been seen in the creations of a famous Portuguese artist. This sardine is also almost a metaphor for the natural beauty of Being, highlighted, or even overshadowed, by an artificial layer. Designer: David Mares
