Ceramic Swallows

The ceramic swallow is a popular symbol in Portuguese culture, art and design. Originally conceived and designed by the famous Portuguese ceramic artist Bordallo Pinheiro in 1891, the ceramic swallow has been interpreted and re-designed. A popular gift between lovers, the ceramic swallows represents characteristics of this migratory bird, in particular loyalty, family and fidelity.
