In 1884 BORDALLO began his ceramics production at the fábrica de faianças in Caldas, revealing pieces of great technical, artistic and creative quality. A world leader in manufacturing decorative faience and tableware. Founded in 1884, the Portuguese brand continues to demonstrate an inexhaustible capacity for renewal, preserving an element of its identity : a unique combination of creativity, naturalism and humour. The major example of this fusion is designated as “Arte Bordallo” (Bordallo Art), constituted by replicas of the immense legacy of Raphael, BORDALLO PINHEIRO’s son, Manuel Gustavo, that nowadays are handcrafted by the artisans of the factory.
