This green ceramic swallow was created in the Caldas da Rainha tradition made legendary by its famous inventor Bordallo Pinheiro.
It is made in a small ceramic workshop in Caldas da Rainha and boasts a remarkable finish: the ceramic is smooth and without surface defects, the edges are prominent, the colors even and the finish very shiny.
Available in various colors and sizes, it is designed with a ventral hole, enabling it to be wall-mounted or laid flat on a piece of furniture
Why I love it
