Christmas Holly Berry serving dish
Perfect for heaps of steaming sprouts or roast potatoes, or perhaps a warm winter salad to go with the left-over turkey on Boxing Day – these dishes bring the Christmas cheer whatever you dish up!
Our 2021 chunky china Holly Berry Collection really brings a bit of Christmas magic with it. Holly and berries surround these serving dishes and available in small, medium or large (the small and medium have flat bottoms, the large has a little pedestal/foot ring), and – as a bit of an early Xmas present for you - you can choose to personalise your dish by adding colour to the holly leaves and even the berries.

All our holly and berries are hand painted and the glazed effect is quite lovely - perfectly imperfect. Please note though that they aren't mass-produced, transfer painted, block colours and identical - they are handmade, and hand painted so each is unique and the glaze effects will be different because of that.
Also, please note that if you opt for the gold options you are still good to use the piece in the oven and dishwasher but NOT in the microwave!
Pictured here is the small serving dish with red berries and white holly.

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.
