Clarice Cliff Bowl
in the 'Gayday' Pattern
Good example of a popular Clarice Cliff pattern beautifully hand painted on a large bowl. The bowl displays very well and is unmistakably Clarice Cliff. The pattern shows red, orange and purple flowers amidst green leaves above brown and green bands. The bowl has a yellow rim with black edging.
Approximate Measurements :
Diameter : 7" (18cm)
Height : 3" (8cm)
The bowl is in good condition. There are no chips, cracks or restoration. There is a small firing flaw on the bottom rim and the thick glaze has run slightly around the rim, as can often be seen on these pieces. There are some light surface marks on the bowl around the brown band commensurate with age and use and some small paint losses but nothing that detracts from the bowl. The colours remain bright and vibrant.
The bowl is fully stamped on the underneath with "Gayday. Hand Painted. Bizarre by Clarice Cliff. Wilkinson Ltd England"
