Who we are

O Caco da Marquesa was established in the spring of 2019, a mission fired by the passions of three lifelong friends.

It is dedicated to bringing a greater awareness of the beauty and diversity of Portuguese ceramics, by highlighting the creative output of local and regional artisans, and, by displaying the artistry and intricacy/sophistication of their work, to bring them the recognition they so richly deserved.

O Caco da Marquesa is located in one of the most distinctive neighborhoods in Lisbon, Alvalade, home to shops and small businesses brimming with Portuguese character.

The physical space is warm and welcoming and each guest receives personalized service, including education and advice on the ceramics collected for viewing and sale. Of course, we believe it is well worth the trip and encourage you to come by!

We understand, though, that a visit may not be practical for all so if you can’t come see us, you can always access our online store.
