Radio Sardine by Bordallo Pinheiro

This sardine wished to pay homage to the old school “battery radio”, so typical of Lisbon's neighborhoods, where through the windows one could hear, on a short-wave radio, the radio soap opera, Fado and football reports, which gave so many joys and sorrows to the people who listened to them.

Sardines represent the Portuguese Coast.
Part of a series of collectible sardines decorated by artists. Comes in a gift box.

1 3/8” x 7 2/7” x 1 3/8”

The Sardine collection is available here.
