The mallard duck pitcher is sure to bring a smile to your face every time you see it. Use to serve water at a dinner party – it’s a great conversation starter!
This cheerful duck jug is from the highly collectible Portuguese ceramics studio, Bordallo Pinheiro. The earthenware jug is lovingly hand-painted to give a realistic feathered effect. The hand-painted nature of Bordallo Pinheiro ceramics means that no two pieces are ever exactly alike. The pitcher features a mallard duck perched on some reeds, which curve over to form the handle.
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.
