'Token sprout' dinner plate
True story: I used to hate brussel sprouts (I love them now) but every single year at Christmas dinner my mother would insist on putting one on my plate. It was if she thought that if I actually had one on my plate I might forget I didn’t like them and eat it. So here you go a bit of sprout-foolery for anyone whose mother is like mine so you can say no thanks I’ve already got one on my plate. You’re welcome.
Available in a large oval dinner plate the sprout (and plate) are handmade so each will be slightly different in size, colour and style - they aren't mass-produced or transfer painted but they are very useable too as it can go in the dishwasher, oven and microwave too.
ps - sprouts are for life, not just for Christmas!
pps - being a large oval dinner plate size means it doubles as a serving platter too!!

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: what we are & what we're not
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.
Our china is not fine and delicate, it is chunky and full of texture. It is handmade (and homemade) and has a very different look and feel to mass-produced pottery. It'll have thumb prints and markers marks but it is made with love and we hope it brings you joy for many years.
