It wouldn’t be a cheese tray without a delicate little mouse eating a slice of cheese on top, and this cheese tray from Bordallo Pinheiro makes a brilliant talking point when serving up the end of the dinner cheese course! Made of earthenware in Portugal using traditional techniques, this piece is hand-painted with a glossy green glaze and finished with statement engravings of a cat and mouse chase around the edge.

Bordallo Pinheiro pieces feature creative and humorous designs of superb technical and artistic quality. Since 1884, they have remained faithful to the tradition of using ancestral making techniques and naturalistic motifs, are rich in Portuguese heritage and have been awarded gold medals in international exhibitions.
