Details

This work presents the story and Art Deco ceramic designs of Clarice Cliff. Angular, uncompromising and embellished in strident primary colours, they were a sensation when they appeared in the 1920s, capturing the mood of the Art Deco movement. Her tea services were as sought after when they were produced as they are today. A cup and saucer of her most collected designs can command a high price in a demanding market. This book captures the mood of the Art Deco era and illustrates the great charm and range of Clarice Cliff's work in china tea-services. It contains a complete record of her tea service designs and gives a memoir of her life and work.
