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.

Each vase is marked USA with the code J3010, but no maker's mark. They were made circa 1950 and are in excellent condition with no cracks or chips. They are being sold as a pair.

A 7-inch bowl designed by Clarice Cliff, made in England in 1929-30. The motif is known as "Umbrellas" or as "Umbrellas and Rain", with alternating panels of giant raindrops and umbrellas seen from above. It is considered one of Cliff's Picasso-esque designs, seen in her earlier work. The condition of this bowl is excellent with a clean interior. The marks for Fantasque and Wilkinson indicate this was a standard shape bowl in the Wilkinson stock that was decorated in Cliff's own workshop.
