The novelty is the box, both beautiful and ingenious, which, after opening, turns into reading material. Call it two in one, if you wish. It includes details concerning this special edition, the history behind the ceramics factory and the black bird that became a decoration must for Portuguese homes.
The leaflet also includes a selection of images, such as the original drawing by the creator. Lastly, the package makes the swallow nearly unbreakable – to test this the box has been thrown from a considerable height, among other harsh treatments. Making it ideal to send in the post, even over long distances. An exclusive A Vida Portuguesa.
