Plain butter dish - med, large
Butter is life and nothing better than having a beautiful butter dish - the medium size one holds a regular sized pack of butter beautifully. The large comfortably holds two regular sized packs of butter.
Plain in name only, you can choose the handle from a big bobble, flower, artichoke, a dog head or a full dog statue because... well, why the devil not!
As with all Marigold and Lettice pottery, it's very robust and can go in the dishwasher and microwave if you need to soften up any butter!!
Please note that while the butter dish and lid are made for each other these are handmade and the clay will pull up a bit more in some places that others meaning there will definately be gaps (some larger than others) between the lid and the base. We say it adds to the charm and unique style of our pottery, but we don't want you to be disappointed if you're expecting a tight fit.
Medium - £45
Large - £55
(CHECK!!! There is a variety of pictures included to show the various handle options, please refer to the description above when making your selection)

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.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS AN APPROXIMATE SIZE AS EACH PIECE IS HANDMADE TO ORDER

Marigold and Lettice pottery
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.
Each piece that is made by Marigold and Lettice is totally handmade and a one-off. So, if you see thumb prints in the clay or the glaze that may be thicker in some parts than others, it's because each piece is unique and is what gives our chunky china its specialness, and a different look and feel to mass-produced pottery.
When you first get your chunky china piece you may hear a ‘ping’ - especially the first time the pottery meets with water. If you do, please don’t worry, it's really quite normal and will stop as soon as the glaze/clay settles down together. You may also notice that the bottom of every piece is left unglazed, and this may leave a slight residue on your shelves, but can be easily wiped away with a damp cloth.
Like with all china, over time you may also notice signs of use in the glaze, but these are just signs of the china being well-loved. If this is the case, please be assured, the piece will still be perfectly fine to use.
