Melon Pitcher

Melon Pitcher

Description

The melon pitcher will have your guests doing double-takes this summer! Is it a jug, or is it a real melon? Use for iced water or a tropical fruit punch at a garden party.

The melon pitcher is just one of the bold designs from the highly collectible Portuguese ceramics studio, Bordallo Pinheiro. The earthenware jug is cleverly shaped and hand-painted to resemble a cantaloupe melon.

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.
