Butter dish on paws - 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 (or a 500g plastic tub).
This rather majestic dish sits on four paws (or claws) and also has a paw inspired half hoop handle... to finish it off there are four marigold-esque flowers on each side. However intricate, 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.

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.
