In 1896, Raphael Bordallo Pinheiro registers the patent of its ceramic swallows probably realizing that it could become a true Portuguese symbol. He wasn’t wrong, the artist’s flights of swallows started inhabiting houses, in Portugal and in several countries where Portuguese people lived (easy to identify by the swallows).
Exactly what I ordered, on time and carefully packaged to avoid breakage. Three dimensional traditional art with memories of my walk along the Portuguese Camino.
