As an example of the kind of rather un-Deco things that she got her name put onto, today I saw a rather ordinary-looking sauceboat and dish - transfer-printed I think - described on the backstamp as "Old Bristol Porcelain ..... Reproduced by Clarice Cliff".

Odd that i can't find another cup & saucer in this Sunkissed pattern anywhere. Might also be odd to have a dinnerware stamp on a cup and saucer. I guess the pattern wasn't originally mean't for cups and saucers. The saucers, although they have the same backstamp, may be oddities as they don't match the cups, unless they were made to be like that, no idea.

May be a late production where the company was sticking her name on old stock

I think by the end she owned the company after marrying the owner Colley Shorter in 1940. So strictly speaking I think she put her own name on everything.
These late wares got sent far and wide and you do find bits just made for countries like Australia. Could be an export design?

Seems the design was made after 1952 according to the book, Clarice Cliff: The Art of Bizarre. I've managed to find a teapot, no cups yet though.
