Clarice Cliff Rhodanthe Jug
in the 'Athens' Shape
Iconic jug designed by Clarice Cliff in the 1930s. It is in the popular 'Athens' shape and decorated in the 'Rhodanthe' pattern. It is marked on the underside "Hand painted. Bizarre by Clarice Cliff. Wilkinson Ltd England"
Approximate Measurements :
Height : 6" (15cm)
Width Handle to Spout: 6" (15cm)
Base Diameter : 3" (8cm)
It is in excellent condition for its age. The colours have remained bright and vibrant and the piece has been well looked after without suffering any damages or major paint losses. There is a small mark on the underside rim, probably a firing flaw, just pointed out for completeness (see photo).
The piece displays beautifully and is a rare example - a fine addition to anybody's collection. The best description comes from the photos so please look at them all carefully and if you have any questions at all please ask.
