Bordallo Pinheiro Andorinha Small

The Andorinha – swallow – is today one Lisbon emblem. When designed in 1896, the bird quickly became a Portuguese rallying coat of arms in Portugal and in several countries where Portuguese people lived.

For Portuguese, Bordallo Pinheiro Andorinha means hope, luck, and love. It is now deeply rooted in the Portuguese culture.

Raphael Bordallo Pinheiro is one of the most influential people of nineteenth century Portuguese culture. With a remarkable production particularly regarding the areas of humoristic drawing, caricature and ceramic creation, Bordallo Pinheiro is part of Portuguese History. His remarkable work with ceramics was awarded with the gold medal in international exhibitions (Madrid, Antwerp, Paris and in St. Louis, United States).

Fábrica de Faianças das Caldas was established in June 30, 1884, and still operates today. Adopting a modern and entrepreneurial approach, Bordallo Pinheiro plays an essential role in the revitalization of Portuguese ceramics. The artistic heritage of its factory still glows on the national and the international Art scene.

Bordallo Pinheiro remains faithful to tradition through the use of ancestral manufacture techniques and the naturalistic motifs at the root of the brand’s great project. At the same time, it gives its lines a contemporaneous dimension, thanks to the excellence of its production and its continuous reinvention, both at the aesthetic and technical level.

The brand’s utilitarian and decorative pieces continue to feed our collective imagination and to take the prestige of Portuguese culture and industry one step further.
