At John Julian we strive to achieve perfection. However a firing will sometimes produce products that don't match up to our exacting standards and we class these as Seconds. There may be a slight crack on the base, the decoration may be a bit off centre or there could be tiny marks or bumps in the glaze. Alternatively the finish or sizes may differ from the current piece in the range. We can assure you, these are not structural and won't affect your product.
