The distinguished maker Bordallo Pinheiro crafted this gorgeous tropical oval platter.
Raphael Bordallo Pinheiro was a giant of 19th century Portuguese culture, and to this day his work is celebrated. He gained fame with his comedic caricatures, which satirized the politics of the day, before turning his attention to ceramics. He designed and created vibrant, innovative pieces with a unique balance of gorgeous realism and whimsical fantasy. Not only an innovator in style, Bordallo Pinheiro established a groundbreaking factory for his ceramic production – which still operates today.
Bordallo Pinheiro established the Fábrica de Faianças, his factory in Caldas, in 1884. He was always keen to explore his creative potential and try his hand at new things. His work included panels, pots, centerpieces, vase busts, fountain basins, and gigantic animals, among many other things. This dazzling variety of high-quality products earned him a global reputation and awards at exhibitions in Antwerp, Madrid, Paris, and St. Louis.
Today, over 130 years after the first opening, the factory continues to produce Bordallo Pinheiro pieces to his exacting standards. Consequently, the brand has continued to innovate in the spirit of the great man, who was always ahead of the curve. The factory has incorporated modern technologies into traditional practices to stay at the forefront of style, technique, and taste.
The tropical oval platter is both microwave and dishwasher safe. Use in conventional ovens is not recommended. Despite its heat-resistant abilities, this item is not resistant to sudden thermal shock. As a result, you should avoid subjecting it to quick temperature changes (such as putting hot parts in cold areas).
