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. Collect these swallows in different sizes, crafted from earthenware with a hole at the back for wall mounting, to recreate a flight of these spring birds darting over terracotta rooftops in Lisbon’s old town.
