Inspired by the original works and vast legacy of Raphael Bordallo Pinheiro, Bordallo Art pieces are currently handcrafted by ceramic artists at the factory using century-old techniques.
This white plate is adorned with contrasting black swallows in flight. The swallow is a well known symbol of Portugal. It is said that swallows are symbols of love and loyalty, but also of home and family values, feelings that are well rooted in the Portuguese culture. Embedded in such meaning, the ceramic swallows of Bordallo Pinheiro are commonly exchanged between people in love, emphasizing their connotation with the feelings of love and loyalty and with home and family values.
