Serving dish - ladybird
One size does not have to fit all when it comes to serving bowls. Nor do they all have to be the same design however they do, in Marigold and Lettice terms, must be very chunky and full of texture and be able to go in the dishwasher!
Now, we have the perfectly imperfect serving bowl for all your needs and occasions from simple suppers to a full-on party; overflowing with nibbles, olives, crisps or roasties; or what about using them for salads or as a fruit bowl? The choice is yours! Our serving bowls - which nest together beautifully - are ideal to take to the table as a serving dish and bold enough to impress anyone - even if empty! Do you know, they even make great plant pots!
Now available in four sizes: small, medium, large and extra-large, please check out the dimensions section below for the approximate sizes. They all have flat bases and deliciously wavy edges.
Our chunky china ladybirds have had the full Marigold and Lettice treatment so think chunky not twee, unique not mass produced and these bowls have a liberal scattering of them! Regardless of what size bowl you opt for, the ladybirds 🐞 all stay the same size just the number of them flying across the bowl differs...
Available in all white or coloured, but if you opt for colour remember that these are all painted by hand, each and every one is unique and a one off meaning that they won’t be/can’t be identical. That is what makes them even more special!
- Small – white £35 / coloured £45
- Medium – white £45 / coloured £55
- Large – white £60 / coloured £70
- Extra-large - white £70 / coloured £85
* please note that the picture showing the different sizes features the bobble design, but we just wanted you to see the sizes we offer!

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.
