Crafted from earthenware and handpainted in Portugal, Bordallo Pinheiro (est. 1884) pieces are inspired by nature. They are quirky and colourful and display a whimsical exuberance. These melancia (watermelon) inspired pieces replicate the fruit through irregularities in the shape, the texture of the fruit pulp, the details on the seeds and the bright colours and painting on the pieces. Add this juicy and colourful salad bowl to your dining table. Perfect for filling with a delicious sharing salad, fruit or left empty as a decorative piece.
Established in the middle of the 19th century by the wonderfully playful Portuguese designer Rafael Bordallo Pinheiro, the brand that bears his name has become something of an institution in his native country thanks to his iconic cabbage leaf pottery. The brand uses traditional techniques to make its inimitable ceramics, drawing inspiration from organic forms to create green cabbage plates and platters, red pepper tableware, leaf-shaped dishes, citrus dinnerware and more.
