Clarice Cliff Bowl
in the 'Limberlost' Pattern
Fine example of a popular and rare Clarice Cliff pattern beautifully hand painted on a large bowl. The bowl displays very well and is unmistakably Clarice Cliff. The pattern shows a large stylised tree with brown trunk and red foliage above two green bands. The bowl has an inner brown rim.
The bowl is fully stamped on the underneath with "Fantasque. Hand Painted. Bizarre by Clarice Cliff. Newport Pottery England"
The bowl is in excellent condition. There are no chips, cracks or restoration and it is free from crazing. There are some very light marks on the inside of the bowl commensurate with age and light use and some surface scratches but nothing that detracts from the bowl. The colours remain bright and vibrant. There is a small imperfection on the rim which I have photographed which looks like it has occurred before painting and firing (see photos).
