The large cabbage leaf tureen is an eye-catching way to serve homemade soup with a retro feel. Cabbage is the ingredient in Portugal’s national dish, caldo verde. This is a hearty soup with cabbage, potatoes, onions and garlic.
With the lid on, the hand-painted tureen resembles a large cabbage. The curling outer leaves not only add to the realistic look of the cabbage, but also act like handles to make it easier to carry. The earthenware tureen is from the highly collectible Portuguese ceramics studio, Bordallo Pinheiro.
In the 1960s a full cabbage tableware set was the mark of a high-society household. Many pieces were highly collectible including Bordallo Pinheiro’s iconic cabbage range. Now these hand-painted earthenware plates, bowls and dishes are back and taking the world by storm. 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.
