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.

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.
