It’s made in a mould from terracotta. Earthenware and terracotta are the same material. But ‘terracotta’ is used to describe an object not made on a potter’s wheel, like a sculpture. Or one that’s unglazed like a flower pot or roof tile. Whereas ‘earthenware’ describes something that is made on a wheel, or is glazed, or both – like tableware. We’ve also given it a sandy finish in a warm, off-white colour which, because we apply it by hand, will be a little different from piece to piece.
Where to use it
Jephson’s a good friend for our Hickstead horses, which have the same finish. They’ll perch anywhere, from side tables to mantelpieces. Try displaying them in bookcases and dressers to break up a collection of books, crockery or glassware.
When it comes to smaller items, we don't hang around.
From our own, white-glove service for delivering larger pieces in the UK and Ireland, to our courier and international partners, rest assured that we’ve done everything we can to make sure your order gets to you on time and in one, perfect piece.
Delivery’s also entirely free if you’re in the UK and spend over £50 (or €100 in Ireland).
We believe that returns should be easy, which is why we approach them with a ‘no quibble’ mindset. And, you’ll also have 28 days to do so – just in case you need time to mull things over.
All that’s needed to keep Jephson clean is a quick dust down with a soft cloth from time to time.
