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 - Purring

This sardine tells a story of love and greed among animals. The sardine usually ends up in the cat’s mouth, who in the end licks his paws in the sun. In this version, the cat seems to have been swallowed by the sardine, an inversion of the natural order of things. But when one looks more closely, one sees the natural order of things restored, one just has to pay attention to their expression. Designer: José Feitor
