Beautiful Bugs platter (bee, butterfly, ladybird)

Beautiful Bugs platter (bee, butterfly, ladybird)

What could say Spring/Summer more than 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 hope you love our Beautiful Bugs collection as much as we do! These platters are just the ticket for dishing up, styling it out and displaying always!


Chose the right size from: medium or large in rectangle, oval or circle.  Whichever you choose, they'll be as good overflowing with a Sunday roast as it would with a salad on and of course all are oven, dishwasher and microwave proof. What’s more you can also choose between a scattering of the same bug, or a mix of all three (ladybird, butterflies, bees)


  • Medium (oval, rectangle, circle)  – white bugs £40 / coloured bugs £50
  • Large (oval, rectangle, circle) – white bugs - £50 / 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 painted by hand, each and every one is unique and a one off meaning that they won’t be/can’t be identical. That is what makes them even more special!


Pictured here is the medium oval platter in with coloured mixed bugs.

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.
