Sardine - St Anthony
Patron symbol of Lisbon, St. Anthony brings in the lap the Child Jesus and bless marriages. Offers to the city a traditional party without rival, in which joy is adorned with sweet basil and the greatest figure is His Highness Dona Sardinha.
The Sardine collection by Bordallo Pinheiro results from a collaboration between the Earthenware Factory of Caldas da Rainha, founded in 1884 by Raphael Bordallo Pinheiro, and EGEAC/ Municipality of Lisbon.
The original Bordallo Pinheiro’s Sardine, due to its classic three-dimensional nature, became the ideal support for receiving the creative work that the “Festas de Lisboa/EGEAC” (Lisbon Festivities) have been developing since 2003, which granted the Sardine the status of icon of the city.
