There are striped plates, then there are Marigold and Lettice’s perfectly imperfect chunky china plates!

Hand painted stripes in the colour of your choice, no two will be the same because, well no rulers or stencils used here! Please don’t expect straight lines, solid colour because that isn’t our jam – we’re about as far away from mass produced ceramics as it is possible to be.


Available in three sizes: dinner plate, lunch plate and cake/saucer size. All three sizes feature the small-wave crown edging.


Dinner plate (23cm-ish wide) – £32

This plate has the same width across the base as our other round dinner plate, but because it doesn’t have the wide rim of some of our other styles, it looks smaller. That being said we’ve given it a lovely raised lip which gives the plate a lovely depth and it’s matching of the other small-wave crown edged striped plates.


Lunch plate (18cm-ish wide) – £26

Similar depth to the cake and dinner plates, this is the ideal sized plate for a sandwich and a small salad, or perhaps a side of crisps and a slice of quiche or cake.


Cake plate/saucer size (14cm-ish wide) - £22

Ideal size for a sandwich, scone or piece of cake, biscuits or just about anything piled high!


It goes without saying, but we’ll say it anyway, they might be hand painted but all of these plates will still happily go in the oven or dishwasher - what’s not to love!


Choose from any of the colours – many of which are shown on our colour wheel pictures:

  • Blue (mid-blue or the deeper cornflower blue)
  • Green (bright green or dark green)
  • Orange
  • Peach
  • Pink (baby pink or the paler powder pink)
  • Purple
  • Red
  • White (this is a very, very subtle stripe effect and the base colour of the plate is a creamy white to allow the stripe to stand out more)
  • Yellow




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 FOUR WEEKS although this is just a guide and if it goes over please bear with us, if it goes under let's celebrate!

Our china looks and feels very (very) different to mass-produced pottery; it’s not fine or delicate, but wonderfully chunky and full of texture, you’ll see thumb prints, makers marks, glaze specks/drips and heaps of individuality. We call it perfectly imperfect pottery and firmly believe it’s all the better for it!


Please note that because each piece is unique the design will be different from the one in the picture – similar but unique.


Marigold and Lettice pottery is (hand)made to be loved and used, and happily goes in the oven, dishwasher and microwave.

striped plates

  • 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.


  • please note that this is an approximate size as each is handmade so may be slightly different size wise!
