TAKING TEA WITH CLARICE CLIFF by Leonard Griffin
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.
