Blue Bird Ragwort Leaf Dish

Blue Bird Ragwort Leaf Dish


The blue bird ragwort leaf dish brings the countryside indoors. Use the charming dish to present small whole fruits, such as strawberries, plums or apricots.

The blue bird ragwort leaf dish features a little blue bird perched on a leaf of common ragwort, or cineraria. It is made by the highly collectible Portuguese ceramics studio, Bordallo Pinheiro. Every dish is lovingly hand-painted, for realistic looking leaves and animals. The hand-painted nature of Bordallo Pinheiro ceramics means that no two pieces are ever exactly alike.

The Portuguese ceramics studio, Bordallo Pinheiro, was set up in 1884. Brothers Raphael and Feliciano Bordallo Pinheiro started the venture, and many of the pieces today are still made to Raphael’s designs. In only twenty-one years, Bordallo Pinheiro’s bold, artistic ceramics gained international recognition. Raphael took inspiration from the flora and fauna around his home town of Caldas, as well as drawing on ideas from the Renaissance and from the Art Nouveau & Naturalism movements.
