jam tart handled jar
Who doesn't need/want a jar or sugar bowl with a lifesized jam tart as the handle! Of course it is chunky (would you expect anything less) but looks surprisingly delicate...
Please note that the tart in the pictures will not be the one you receive as yours will only be made once the order is received!
Makers note: While the base and lid are made for each other and the lid has a lip inside to stop it slipping around, they are handmade pieces, and the clay will pull up a bit more in some places that others meaning you should expect some gapping 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.
The jar - and jam tart - are handmade so each will be slightly different in size and shape. Please note too that because they aren't mass-produced or transfer painted each tart is unique and the glaze effects will be different because of that. They might be beautiful but they are very useable too as it can go in the dishwasher, oven and microwave too.

Marigold and Lettice pottery is (hand)made to be loved and used, and happily goes in the oven, dishwasher and microwave. Our chunky china has a very different look and feel to mass-produced pottery; each piece is handmade so expect to see thumb prints and perfectly imperfect glazing - it’s what makes our pottery unique and full of character.
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), the process takes a MINIMUM OF THREE TO FOUR WEEKS although this is just a guide and if it goes over 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.
