seconds: small flower jug
Everything deserves a wonderful home and our seconds are just extra-special-imperfectly-not-perfect-chunky-china! Please make sure you read the description below which sets out what makes it a second and how it will impact its use.
Chunky jugs - and we're not being rude - are all the rage in Marigold and Lettice and this small one is ideal for gravy, cream, custard or just about anything. It also makes a lovely vase for flowers too!
Literally packed full to bursting with flowers - it looks surprisingly delicate but it is, of course, chunky and robust enough to go in the dishwasher, oven and microwave.
What makes it a second?:
You could say this is a first-and-a-half as a split in one flower has happened during the drying out phase, but it is just a cosmetic fault and doesn’t affect the use of the jug in any way. Because of the styling of the flowers, you may even struggle to see the split and just assume it is part of the design!
Reflecting the ‘fault’ it has been discounted by 15%.

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.
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.
