Looks "right" to me other than being unmarked. (I'm no expert on her work, so this is just an opinion)

This shape is sometimes signed at the side (at the bottom between the "feet"), can you see anything?

Shape number 400. (Rose bowl I think)

Does anyone know the name of this Newport/Clarice Cliff pattern? Thanks

Post by treasure.hunter.D on July 13th 2012, 2:40 am

Hi,

This piece is part of the collection I'm working on liqidating for the owner. It's a Newport Pottery piece with a Clarice Cliff art pattern. I can find references and pictures to similar pieces but no pattern name. The pattern name, if anyone knows it, and any other info regarding it, like what years it was made etc would be most appreciated. It's basically a pattern with a turquoise  band for trim with metallic gold (the pics look kinda coppery but it is gold)sailboats inset. TIA. Cheers





Extra Info from thD : Found out a little while ago. The pattern is called "Stralia" and is from the mid 30's.

It is possible that it was made for export, as the name and where you have found them does hint at that. The mid to late 1930s does seem right as the colour palette did become more restrained at that time.

Thanks. Every little bit of info helps.

Much appreciated.

Clarice Cliff. Latona Tree

Post by slopingsteve on December 19th 2013, 8:17 pm



I don't know now whether my memory is playing tricks but ....
I was sold this little can by an antique dealer friend on the pavement in Mill Road in Cambridge. The cup was identifiable as cup but that was all; it was absolutely filthy. He knew it was Clarice because the mark on the base was visible but no more than that. I took a chance because he had kept it for me. The revelation of the pattern as I cleaned it is now always in retrospect accompanied, in my head, by the music from Fidelio where the prisoners are released into the sun. I could not believe how lucky I was as I gently uncovered the enamels and the Latona glaze and realized exactly what I had bought. If only I could find a saucer to go with it....

Graham Sutherland for Clarice's Artists in Industry 1935. It was a large, wide-ranging project with a lot of artists and manufacturers/producers involved. Some artists got really involved and others took it less seriously........

"Graham, It's that woman on the phone again. She wants to know if you've got any designs sorted out yet because she says it takes quite a long time to produce some pottery and the exhibition is at the end of the week........"
"Bloody hell! Here, send her this. I've seen some of her stuff and she wouldn't know art if it bit her in the arse!"
"Are you sure dear? If you don't mind me saying..er..it's not..er..it's not as..err...surreal as some of your other work."
"Hmmmmm, I could argue that it depends on what you think it represents. I could argue that, if I could be bothered, WHICH I CAN'T!"

Clarice Cliff

Post by big ed on August 21st 2014, 1:28 pm



I bought this Clarice Cliff off Ebay for £25...+ £5 post , ( not for me originally) the backstamp has Fantasque Bizzare , but also an impressed mark 11 over 32 and a small lozenge , am I correct in assuming this is the 11th monther over 1932 yr or not , it's got quite a bit of crazing and 4 round indent places I assume for egg cups measures 17cm across , also does the pattern have a name , other than Fantasque I mean the actual crappy scene , Ed

Thanks Cookie , think i'll give them a miss , I am on enough forums already and to be honest I can't stand clarice cliff , to join a forum full of them would drive me round the bend , it's probably just called the " crappy orange tree behind the crappy orange cottage pattern "  Laughter

As I think I mentioned in the past the first pottery that I ever collected was Clarice Cliff - I'm not sure any of you believed me!

You are correct Ed that the piece was produced in November 1932. It could have been decorated later but by then they had become quite busy so blanks didn't hang around too long.

Well worn and chipped but an unusual pattern which I think is called "Umbrellas and Broth" if memory serves. I too started out collecting Clarice, info mainly, as the actual product was far too expensive for my threadbare pocket. Got waylaid by Leach and KPB and watches and Aleluia and ....etc........There is so much stuff to learn about!!!

Just remembered. This golden coloured stamp was only used for a few months around 1928/9  I think. I've only ever seen one example before.
