The Portugese cartoonist, Rafael Bordallo Pinheiro
began creating unique ceramic tiles & pottery at 38 years of age.
He became renowned for some of his creations
and quickly became known as a Master in the pottery
world. Relatively unknown in America, Bordallo Pinheiro
pottery is very popular in Portugal and abroad. The production
facility still exists in Portugal where is started 120 years ago.
Many of Rafael Bordalo Pinheiro's works are housed
in a museum in the interior of the factory
where pottery is still produced today.
Faianças Artísticas Bordalo Pinheiro, Ltd,
continues to produce beautiful pottery and dishware
following the design and standards set
forth by Rafael Bordallo Pinheiro over a century ago.
Many of the designs feature animals, fish and
other motifs found in nature. The combination of rich colors
and natural subjects makes the Bordallo Pinheiro
line of pottery highly collectible and still useful in today's kitchen.
