Miniature Portuguese Container


2 x 2 x 1.5

I found these amazing little containers while roaming the streets of Porto, Portugal.  Maria Goretti Guedes Pereira took over the factory and production of the prestigious nineteenth century ceramic artistic Carvalhinho, who lived and worked in Porto, Portugal his entire life.  Today while Maria is busy in the studio keeping Carvalhinho’s artistic eye alive her husband is out on the street with a small table set up, selling these beautiful pieces of Portuguese history.

Each piece is made with Porcelain, hand painted and signed on the bottom.
