We are proud to be able to bring you a Clarice Cliff section as requested by many of our customers.


Clarice Cliff was born 20th January 1899, in Tunstall, Stoke-on-Trent. She was one of eight children.  She left school at age of 13 and began her first job in the industry as a gilder. She is probably most famous for her Bizarre hand painted range, Crocus patterns and bold bright geometric designs. Another range, the Fantasque range grew between 1928 and 1934. Featuring abstracts of landscapes, cottages and trees, as well as Art Deco patterns.


Clarice Cliff married Colley Shorter in 1940 after Colley’s wife died.  Colley himself passed away in 1963.  Clarice passed away on the 23rd October at Chetwynd House, the house she had moved into upon marrying Colley.





This Clarice Cliff pine cone shape dish decorated with various other fruits and flowers is in lovely condition.  Minor crazing beginning to show but lovely all the same.  It measures just under 33cms long.
