Bordallo Pinheiro has been producing ceramics using traditional craftsmanship in Portugal since 1884, during the prime of art nouveau in Europe. The naturalistic designs of the pieces speak to their timelessness. Bordallo Pinheiro is a brand that truly treats ceramics as art.
Raphael Bordallo Pinheiro established Fábrica de Faianças das Caldas on June 30, 1884. The pieces he was producing were immediately recognised for their quality. Hundreds of the original moulds produced at this time are still in existence and provide the basis for today's production.
Being such a heritage brand, Bordallo supports the cultivation of traditional ceramic practices and artisans in Portugal. Ceramics as an art form celebrate the unity between creativity and utilitarianism - incorporating art into the everyday.
Bordallo Pinheiro ceramics belong on a dinner table just as much now as they did in 1884, bringing life and a reminder of nature into your home.
