The breton broderie motif (suggesting lace) was used as the border element on these expertly painted platters, made for the Grande Maison HB pottery in Quimper, France, between 1925 and 1930. The central decors are a woman sitting in a field holding a wine or water jug and a man sitting on a rock smoking his pipe. Both figures were hand painted by an artist identified as A (not an amateur pieceworker). The pieces were molded with two holes for hanging with manilla twine. Both are in excellent condition with beautifully scalloped borders. Measurements are 11-1/4 inches by 7-3/4 inches by 1-3/4 inches.

This little gem is a perfectly hand-painted example of Clarice Cliff's popular Spring Crocus motif on a traditional shape cup known as Athens. The plump pink, blue and dark yellow flowers fill the surfaces, and the technique of painting the flowers starting from the bottom to the broader top is easy to discern on this example. The set is early for Spring Crocus which was made and marketed for many years because of its beauty and popularity. It has Cliff's gold backstamp for Newport Pottery over the original Wilkinson's stamp, indicating it was made circa 1935, and it looks like it was never used: condition is perfect. The cup measures 2-1/4 inches in height, the saucer measures 5 inches in diameter.

An Art Deco design on a substantial eight inch tall pitcher or jug made in England by Fieldings in their Crown Devon line. The hand-painted decoration includes stylized orange, yellow and brown sunflowers with fairly realistic green leaves and dramatic black leaves with white zig-zag lines. No doubt influenced by the designs of Clarice Cliff and very bold for this factory. The jug has light crazing typical of earthenware from the era, a few missing flecks of paint in the overglaze colors; otherwise in mint condition. The circumference is 19 inches.

A rare early coffee pot, unusual creamer in a similar paneled shape, six dessert or luncheon plates, and six cups and saucers comprise this set, missing only the sugar bowl. All were hand made in Czechoslovakia in the 1920's for Joseph Mrazek's Peasant Art Industry and exported to the US for sale. The set is decorated with his familiar flowers and flower buds motif with the yellow squiggles ground - including some stray yellow paint marks inside the cream pitcher. The condition of all the pieces is very good to excellent, taking into account they were rather crudely made. The coffee pot is in excellent condition. No additional charge for shipping in the US.

These egg cups were made by Poole in England circa 1925, during the art pottery era under the ownership of Carter, Stabler and Adams. The are hand-painted with identical motifs and were done by the same painter whose cipher is prominent on the bottoms. Both have been used, with light crazing in the interiors and a flake missing from the bottom rim of one. There were wax remnants in one cup so they have been used as candlesticks - but their original purpose was as egg cups. Measurements are about 1-3/4 inches in diameter and 1-5/8 inches in height. They are offered for sale as a pair.

The strong colors on this biscuit barrel, or cookie jar, are remarkable with only a few scratches in the glaze on the top of the barrel and light oxidation of the outermost rim of blue glaze on the lid, and no other damage. This is one of Clarice Cliff's designs and shapes, number 333, designed and brought to market in England in 1932- 1933. Blue Chintz is one of her stylized designs, as though looking at a chintz ceramic pattern through a microscope that has enlarged each flower into a color field. The barrel has its original raffia handle, dyed dark blue and in very good condition. The barrel and lid measure about seven inches in height and the circumference of the jar is 19 inches.

Bobbins is one of Clarice Cliff's abstracted or Picasso inspired motifs, in production from 1931 to 1933. This bowl is in a simple shape and has both Bizarre and Fantasque stamps, indicating it was made at the Newport pottery, bought out by Cliff's employer Wilkinson's, with the factory turned over to Cliff to accommodate her burgeoning workshop. The bowl was probably a Newport blank, not one of Cliff's own shapes, with the design applied in three stages by three painters: an outliner, an enameler and a bander. It shows signs of use in the honeyglaze interior and some tiny missing flecks in the design but there is no damage. The bowl measures 7-3/8 inches in diameter and 3-1/4 inches in height.
