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.

Collection: Sardine

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

Sardine - Sardine Natural

The sardine, with its silvery blue and black hues, darker on the back and lighter on the sides and belly, is found in the northeast Atlantic and the Mediterranean Sea, where it dwells on coastal areas, between 25 and 100 meters deep. It undertakes migrations in large shoals that protect fish from predators during the day, in deeper waters, and move at night-time to shallower waters to feed on algae and small crustaceans. It reproduces from October to April, a time when sardines are leaner and not so tasty. The sardine is the most popular fish in summer festivals and fairs in Portugal, as well as the main species used in the Portuguese canning industry.

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

Sardine- Cat

This is a cat that truly loves Lisbon sardines. He ate so many sardines that, inevitably, he became one of them. Designer: Elena Ospina
$60.00

Sardine - My Love

Inspired by the love verses that the girls of the Minho region embroidered on handkerchiefs for their boyfriends, this sardine represents the promise of endless love. The Sweetheart Handkerchiefs are recognised by their strong colours, love symbols and spelling errors. It was a romantic allurement ritual where the sewing needles were the keyboard at that time. Designer: Oupas! Design
$60.00

Sardine - Pop Art

A sardine that reflects the contagious joy of the Popular Saints’ festivities, inspired by the work of Andy Warhol, who used bright and diverse colours to represent the impersonality of objects and celebrities, bringing art closer to everyday life. Portuguese tradition is pop too. Designer: Arianne Amores
$60.00

Sardine - Nossa Srª de Fátima

We can call it a tribute to the Sanctuary of Fatima, which annually welcomes pilgrims from all over the world, on a pilgrimage to express their faith and belief in the place of the apparition of Our Lady to the three Shepherd children: Francisco, Jacinta and Lúcia. A holy sardine! Designer: Patrícia Pereira
$60.00

Sardine - Cacilheira

The “Cacilheira” [Ferryboat] decided to recreate the connection between the two banks of the river Tagus. A whirlwind of going back and forth, on her trips to Trafaria to go to the beach, or in the daily rhythm to go to work between the port of Cacilhas and Cais do Sodré. That’s quite a river!
