Portugal Antique Azulejo Tile Replica Metal Purse Clutch- 1837 Pasteis de Belem Delft - OOAK Majolica Porcelain

Sorry, this item has sold.

Conquered in 1147, Lisbon is the lovely capital of Portugal with its old cobblestone roads and beautiful tiles.


As a result of the 1820 liberal revolution, all convents and monasteries in Portugal were shut down in 1834, the clergy and labourers expelled. In an attempt at survival, someone from the monastery offered sweet pastries for sale in the shop; pastries that rapidly became known as ‘Pastéis de Belém’.

These tiles are a replica of the amazing Delft tiles that cover the walls of this famous Pasteleria which dates back to 1837, called Pasteis de Belem. If you ever go to Lisbon, you must try their delicious warm custard pastries and wash them down with a "bica" or an espresso.

This is a one of a kind clutch that will come with a chain to wear as a shoulder bag.
The tiles were individually placed. What a statement piece! 6" x 3 1/2" x 2 1/2" Metal Purse with shoulder chain.
Pasteis de Belem, 1837

All my tiles are replicas made of polymer clay where the image actually becomes part of the clay through baking. No glue is used in the process. The pieces become waterproof and scratch resistant. Due to the handmade and hand shaped nature of each tile, slight variations will occur, as no two pieces are alike.
