Vista Alegre is the fruition of a dream of a man typical of the 19th Century, Jose Ferreira Pinto Basto. Influenced by the success of a glass factory in Marinha Grande, Pinto Basto decided to create a factory of "porcelain, glass and chemical processes." Today, Vista Alegre, more than being market leader in Portugal and possessing the best and most automated porcelain factories in the world, continues to develop and preserve the porcelain made and worked by hand, honoring its history and tradition. It is without doubt an institution, in Portugal and in the world, synonymous of excellence and unequalled quality. To see the gorgeous designs of Vista Alegre in person, please visit our boutique at Park Avenue on 59th Street.
