At the start of the factory’s activity it produced a diverse range of products, be they practical items made from red clay (jugs, etc), or pieces made from white clay such as faiences and traditional glazed tiles.

Today, Viúva Lamego‘s production is characterized by a vast range of traditional glazed tiles, always hand-painted, which reproduce designs from the sixteenth, seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. It is also produces projects through special order or by direct collaboration with visual artists or architects based on their designs.
