Chicken statue

Chicken statue

Chickens are for life not just for Easter, and this year we’re so excited to launch our chunky china chicken statues! Now, a bit different for us but all the more special for it, we’ve been able to track down some vintage chocolate egg moulds to cast the statues from – so they are full of details and a calorie free Easter egg, that can be used year after year! Win win all round we say!


Still chunky of course as they are made from clay not chocolate and available in two different sizes: mini/small (£15) and small/medium (£20).


Available in all white, or with a splash of red on its comb and wattle!

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.

  • 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.
