This lovely sugar bowl by English master potter Clarice Cliff dates to c. 1928 - 1936. Stamped with the original backstamp, the piece hails from the Newport Pottery. Cliff began to experiment with unusual shapes to cover imperfections on old defective white ware. The result was her bizarre ware, which became world famous. This pattern, Crocus, is one of her most well known patterns and started very early on in the bizarre ware process. Orange Blue and Purple Crocus flowers adorn the porcelain in upward strokes. The lid is beautifully shaped in a form reminiscent of a lily pad. This classic Clarice Cliff piece is in superb condition and would make a fine addition to any existing collection.
