Lovely and rare Bordallo Pinheiro 2 frogs vase, majolica pottery made in Portugal
Pois likes: This Bordallo Pinheiro 2 frogs vase is beautiful and charming. It features a pair of green frogs on opposite sides on a creamy celadon ground. Rafael Bordallo Pinheiro is a famous Portuguese cartoonist who began creating ceramic tiles and pottery later in life in the early 20th century. The hundreds of original moulds created for his pieces are still kept by the Bordallo Pinheiro factory, which carries on his work. Animals and vegetables were the most recurrent themes of Bordallo Pinheiro and you will be hard-pressed to find someone in Portugal who does not recall the presence one of his swallows, cabbage-shaped tureens or sugar bowls from their youth. It is extremely popular in Portugal and abroad.
Pois testimonial: “What makes this vase so peculiar are the frogs, they look so real, as if they are just about to jump at us or snap a bug from a flower“.
