Clarice Cliff: A Price Guide
Clarice Cliff is one of the most important and well-known Art Deco ceramic designers in Britain and abroad. Her brightly hand-painted table wares took the rather reserved British pottery market by storm during the late twenties and early thirties. This book looks at how Clarice Cliff became so successful through her intuitive sense of colour and shape and an understanding of what sort of pottery the younger generation wanted in their new homes coupled with her great ability to interpret the latest contemporary patterns and shapes from Europe and adapt the style for the more reserved British market.
The main part of the book focuses on collecting Clarice Cliff pottery highlighting the development of her patterns and shapes alongside an extensive price guide that gives the collector full information about actual sales with detailed information on dates and prices realised at reputable auctions. The book features a section on the Harrods exhibition, a top ten Clarice Cliff pattern guide and a section on fakes.
