Clarice Cliff Cabinet Plate. Westminster Abbey. 1950 period. Signed. New condition.
The vast majority of Clarice's 'Art Deco' output was between 1927 and 1936. However, after the 'Bizarre' period, Clarice continued to produce many wares in her own unique style and to suit the current tastes of the nation and the various Worldwide export markets. In the post-war period Clarice Cliff moved to Newtport Pottery where she designed. Most of the pieces were mass produced but some were hand painted. She remained at the Newport factories right up until 1964 when she sold the factories to Midwinter's and retired.
This lovely cabinet plate has a cream ground, edged with gold. Surrounding the central painting of Westminster Abbey with Bib Ben in the background is a border with scenes of London landmarks. A travel guide in miniature!
The plate has a diameter of 10 ½" with a shallow bowl center with a rise of 1". The backstamp is a genuine Clarice Cliff with a Regd. No. 840075.
These plates have never commanded the prices that the Art Deco ones have, but are steadily increasing as Clarice Cliff becomes more widely known on this side of the Atlantic.
Condition is perfect. No wear to the edges or scratches.
