The squirrel pitcher is an adorable addition to your table. Use to serve water or perhaps even cocktails. The woodland critter has been lovingly hand-painted, so it almost looks as though it will spring to life!

The squirrel jug looks just like a red squirrel clutching a precious acorn. Its bushy tail curves up to form the handle. The pitcher is made by the highly collectible Portuguese ceramics studio, Bordallo Pinheiro. The hand-painted nature of each piece 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.
