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 Rita Costa Pereira. Inspired by an iconic brand that has been a household name in Portugal for decades, Old Sardine alludes to the scent of a freshly-shaven face. The colours, the caravel sailing ship, the lettering... elements that navigate through affective memories that comfort the soul. Like the smell of sardines, this cologne became the distinctive mark of my Portuguese identity.
