SUMMER TIME! | Old Portuguese Stuff

SUMMER TIME!

Palácio do Conde do Bolhão, Porto. The “count” or his decorator had a perverse sense of humour and incorporated a couple of tomatoes and a cucumber as a motif for his cornice, in one of the beads. In Portuguese the phallic references are literal. Above, a repeating fork and spoon in another reed sound innocent by comparison, and still above a frieze of grapes mixed with pineapples makes no mistakes: hospitality together with plentifulness. One can only imagine the parties this place must have seen, and its signs are immortalized in stucco.
