Lemon serving dish - med, large, pedestal
When life gives you lemons, we say lemon-chunky-china! First up is this 🍋 serving dish: big enough to make an excellent fruit bowl (not just for lemons obviously), perfect for dishing up sweet or savory, ideal to take to the table as a serving dish, and bold enough to impress anyone - even if empty!
Available in plain (although nothing plain about this baby) or coloured ones. The coloured 🍋 are hand painted and the effect is quite lovely - perfectly imperfect with a range of yellow glazes. Please note that they aren't mass-produced, transfer painted, block colours and identical - this is handmade and handpainted so each is unique and the glaze effects will be different because of that.
They might be beautiful but they are very useable too - as white or coloured - they all go in the dishwasher, oven etc.
The medium serving dish has a flat base, the large sits proudly on a slight footring and the pedestal one is on.... a pedestal! All have frilly edges because we lovely a chunky frill!

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.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THESE ARE AN APPROXIMATE SIZE AS EACH PIECE IS HANDMADE

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.
