Portugal's ceramics company Bordallo Pinheiro has a long and exciting history that began with the artist and 19th century political disruptor, Raphael Bordallo Pinheiro. A major influencer back then.
In 1884, he began a ceramics production in Caldas and the award winning and much copied home wares of Bordallo Pinheiro were born.
At Bordallo Pinheiro, the Leaf collections are more verdant than those in a hot house including sublime banana leaves. You don’t have to fill these leaf-themed dishes with vegetables and salads but it certainly adds a nourishing appeal.
Bordallo Pinheiro - the natural beauty of Portugal on a plate.

The Cabbage Collection, in its rough and flat form, could be used as a metaphor for Portuguese rustic ways, which Bordallo had so many times caricatured. This was a clever way to honour it, placing it on the bourgeoisê tables, where other way it had not been invited.

Microwave resistance - Products must not be empty when used in a microwave. Always use a handle or an appropriate glove when removing heated earthenware pieces from the microwave as they may be hot.
Dishwasher safe, but should not be left in the dishwasher for long periods of time, after the cycle, as the generated steam can damage the pieces.
