Budgie serving dish
Budgies are for life, fact! Budgies are also for chunky china and very much for chunky china serving bowls!
Available in medium or large, these serving bowls are perfect for anything and everything. Big enough to make an excellent fruit bowl, perfect for a salad, ideal to take to the table as a serving dish, and bold enough to impress anyone - even if empty! Adorned with a three budgies (small, medium and large) in blue/cream, green/yellow, pink/orange.
You must remember though, that the budgies are handmade and hand glazed so each will be slightly different in placement and colour. Remember they are chunky interpretations of budgies and their colours - not an anatomically correct replica!!
Please note that the medium dish has a flat bottom and the large has a little pedestal/foot ring. All are safe to use in the oven, dishwasher and microwave.
- Medium - £60
- Large - £75
Pictured here is the medium serving dish. Please note that the extra large plastic pigeon isn't part of the pottery - merely a photo prop!!!

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 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.
