About The Line: Springing forth from the fertile imagination of beloved Portuguese humorist, illustrator, and artisan Raphael Bordallo Pinheiro at the height of the Arts and Crafts movement, Bordallo Pinheiro's renowned representational ceramics have been gracing exquisite tablescapes with a wink since 1884 (the iconic "cabbages" are one of the most popular everyday dishes in Portugal to this day). Still lovingly made by hand in Raphael's factory in the town of Caldas da Rainha—or "The Queen's Baths", named so for the town's healing pools, lined with the same mineral-rich clay that the faience pottery has been made from since the studio's founding—this tableware is the perfect blend of serviceable and whimsical. Our favorite.
