The sardine collection by Bordallo Pinheiro results from a collaboration between the earthenware factory of Caldas da Rainha, EGEAC (Lisbon’s Cultural and Animation municipal entity) and Lisbon’s City Council. The original Bordallo Pinheiro sardine, designed in the XIX century, due to its classic three-dimensional nature, became the ideal support for receiving the creative work from EGEAC. Designed by Isabel Colher. Being a bigwig of the Lisbon nobility of the 18th century, he has exquisite taste and language ticks, like “Oh la la!” or “Et, voilá!”. He organizes the “Salon Musical et Littéraire”, receiving guests while reclined on a bed from the previous century, at the Chambre Bleu in his palace in Belém.
