Traditional Portuguese ceramic swallow delivered here in a pale blue version.
This swallow is manufactured, in several sizes, in very fine quality, by the famous Portuguese ceramic workshop "Memoria Lusa" which takes great care to respect the initial shapes of the Andorinhas.
Why I love it
- The irreproachable craftsmanship quality.
- The central hole that allows it to be easily hung to the wall.
Nowadays, the swallow (Andorinha) is an icon of national folklore and an object present in all Portuguese homes. It is used both outdoors on a facade and indoors on a wall. The swallow proposed here is entirely handmade and handpainted, in a traditional way, in a small workshop located in the countryside of Alcobaça.
You will find all the techniques and tips to hang them on the wall on our blog " How to use swallows for your decoration".
