Fish Tureen

Fish Tureen

Description

The fish tureen brings an eye-catching, retro element to dinner parties. Use to serve fish soup or bouillabaisse for a themed meal.

The fish tureen is made by the highly collectible Portuguese ceramics studio, Bordallo Pinheiro. Every tureen is expertly moulded and hand-painted to look like a real fish. The upturned fin on the lid of the tureen serves as a handle. The hand-painted nature of Bordallo Pinheiro ceramics means that no two 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.
