Clarice Cliff not your usual.....

Have any of you ever seen this CC pattern? I would never have recognised it! It belongs to a friend and I said I'd ask you guys and gals about it.

It looks fairly typical of the rather conservative kind of pattern shown in this 1947 advert for the AJ Wilkinson/ Newport pottery conglomerate.

I vaguely remember hearing/reading that there was a phase when they marked patterns with her name that were just approved by her as design director rather than being her own work.

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".
