Swanning around vase
Our new swan 🦢range literally ticks all our boxes – white ✅ chunky ✅, unique ✅, splash of colour which only serves to make the white pop even more ✅✅✅!!! Most of us know that Queen Elizabeth II technically owns all of the unclaimed swans in open water in England and Wales and we'd say that these vases are literally fit for royalty!
Now, each vase will be different because, well each swan is slightly different. Each of the 🦢beaks are handpainted orange and black: expect each one to be slightly different as the glaze takes on its own character in the kiln - no transfer printed or block made for us. We love that even more, but exact replicas they aren’t so please expect them to have their own characters (perfectly imperfect as always).
The swans will all be the same size regardless of the size of the vase you order, but the bigger the vase the more swans 🦢you’ll have swimming around the base.
Price/ size options:
Small - £45
Medium - £55
Large - £80

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 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.
