Queen head cereal bowl
To honour the Queen in her 96th year and the Platinum Jubilee milestone here is our chunky china tribute to her - however, I make it in full knowledge that we’ll be sent to the Tower if the Her Majesty ever saw her chunky china replica!!!
This cereal bowl sized dish is perfect for, well, cereal and just about anything else needed (soup, icecream, pasta, small serving dish - do you get the idea!). It isn't small as the Queen would want you to enjoy a feast whenever you use it and it is, of course, chunky!
Deceptively robust (it truly does go in the dishwasher, oven and microwave) each Queen will be totally unique as each is handmade and hand painted just for you - so expect slightly different colour tones from the picture but that just makes it all the more special!
Available in all white or with colour but to be clear the plain one shown in the picture is yet to be fired so it is the pre-glazed coloured clay not the lovely white shiny finish you will get!
All white - £45
Colour - £60
All white - £50
Colour - £65
Please note that the ones in the pictures will not be the one you receive as yours will only be made once the order is received! Also, worth highlight that we won't be adding any gold lustre to the crown meaning you can use it in the microwave!

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.
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.
