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 Sofia Fischer. The Tagus Sardine has the best view of Lisbon. From the river she sees the people, the roofs and the castle; she sees the bridge and the boats, and the departures and returns that make the city live. She is a lucky sardine, and, as Amalia used to say, she has water, she knows how to swim. I wish I was a sardine.
