Clarice Cliff 'Gayday' Trio
A superb cup, saucer and side plate trio designed by Clarice Cliff in the 1930s. They are decorated in the popular 'Gayday' pattern and each piece is fully stamped and signed on the underside "Gayday. Hand Painted. Bizarre by Clarice Cliff. Wilkinson Ltd England"
Approximate Measurements :
Cup Height : 2" (5cm)
Cup Width : 3 1/2" (9cm)
Saucer Diameter : 5 3/4" (14cm)
Side Plate Diameter : 7" (18cm)
The set is in excellent condition for its age. The colours have remained bright and vibrant and the pieces have been well looked after without suffering any damages or major paint losses. There are some minor surface marks commensurate with age and use, mainly knife marks on the centre of the side plate and some wear on the saucer. The thick glaze has run in places but overall the set displays very nicely.
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.
