Wow your guests with the Bordallo Pinheiro melon tureen next time you host a dinner party. Just as everyone is wondering why you’ve brought a melon to the table, you can lift the lid to reveal the next course! The large tureen is ideal for soups and stews, or even large pasta and rice dishes.
The cantaloupe melon collection from Bordallo Pinheiro is proof that tableware doesn’t have to be boring. Each piece is expertly hand painted to resemble a real melon, so no two are 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.
