Beautiful Bugs jug (bee, butterfly, ladybird)

Chunky jugs - and we're not being rude - are perfect for family size servings of gravy, custard or just about anything these jugs also make a lovely vases for flowers too!


Our Beautiful Bug collection is made up of  bees, butterflies and (lady)birds… of course these beautiful bugs have had the full Marigold and Lettice treatment so think chunky not twee, unique not mass produced!  


Available in all white or with their splash of colour, we have the right size with the right bugs to suit your needs and don't forget, all are oven, dishwasher and microwave proof. Choose the bugs, colour and size and we'll get on making them for you.


  • Small jug – white bugs £35 / coloured bugs £45
  • Medium jug – white bugs £40 / coloured bugs £50
  • Large jug – white bugs - £55/ coloured bugs £65


Please note that they aren't mass-produced and if you are opting for coloured bugs, then remember that these are all bugs are painted by hand, each and every one is unique and a one off meaning that bugs and jugs won’t be/can’t be identical. That is what makes them even more special!

Getting your perfect piece to you is our priority but as each piece is made to order (we don't hold any pieces in stock), it takes at least three weeks to handmake, fire and glaze each piece of chunky china. That is just a guide though; while we aim for under, three weeks is the norm - it will be worth the wait so if it's four weeks+ please bear with us.


Please note that because each piece is unique the design will be different from the one in the picture – similar but unique.

  • Marigold and Lettice: what we are & what we're not

    Marigold and Lettice pottery is made to be used, loved and enjoyed; it’s made using sturdy earthenware clay and a thick white glaze. This means it’s hard-wearing and every piece can safely go in the oven, dishwasher, microwave and even the freezer.

    Our china is not fine and delicate, it is chunky and full of texture. It is handmade (and homemade) and has a very different look and feel to mass-produced pottery. It'll have thumb prints and markers marks but it is made with love and we hope it brings you joy for many years.
