Clarice Cliff offers a range of teapots from the art deco era of 1920-1939 and beyond. Some of the designs are traditional teapot shapes with delicate paintings while other designs are unusual shapes such as a conical appearance, a teepee design, or flat sides for a two-dimensional appearance or with uncommon handle and spout designs.
There are many shapes and styles of vase to add to your collection. Some feature the classic crocus design but others will feature classic designs but will be transformed by their unusual shape, such as a yo-yo design which gives the impression it can be used both ways around. Other vases use brightly-coloured geometric designs while others are more traditional with a ribbed appearance and have one single colour paint.
Bowls are great pieces for including a bigger design and enables you to have more use of colour. Clarice Cliff bowls go through many time periods from art nouveau, art deco to modernism.
