A collection faithful to Naturalism both in the theme and in the execution. Set of leaves, in its majority gathered on the countryside and from which the molds were obtained. Each imperfection, sinuosity, texture and organicity found is if not more what nature provide us. Were after added at each one of the leaves a bug, attributing a graceful, affable and distinctive character.

- About Bordallo Pinheiro:
Raphael Bordallo Pinheiro, one of the most influential people of nineteenth century Portuguese culture, will forever be intimately associated with caricature and artistic ceramics. In 1884, Bordallo began his ceramics production at the Fábrica de Faianças, revealing pieces of great technical, artistic and creative quality.
Adopting a modern and entrepreneurial approach, Bordallo Pinheiro plays an essential role in the revitalization of Portuguese ceramics and of the artistic heritage of its factory.
Bordallo Pinheiro remains faithful to tradition through the use of ancestral manufacture techniques and the naturalistic motifs at the root of the brand. These decorative pieces continue to feed our collective imagination and to take the prestige of Portuguese culture and industry one step further.
