A colorful fantasy landscape in the Summerhouse decor (although lacking any building) hand-painted in the workshop of Clarice Cliff after she took charge of the former Newport pottery facilities in 1930. Summerhouse was marketed from 1931 to 1933, and this piece has both trademarks, Bizarre and Fantasque. It shows the hands of a bander/outliner and of a painter who filled in the solid fields of color: yellow, orange, green, lavender, black and blue. The tazza is in perfect condition and measures 6-5/8 inches across and 2-3/4 inches tall. Note: a few white camera flash spots, none on the item.

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.

The mug is in perfect condition and measures four inches in height. It is marked with the initials KM rather than with Murray's full signature.

Two ceramic knife rests made at the Henriot Quimper pottery in France circa 1930, each hand painted with a man, a woman, and flowers. The styling is very similar on the two but they are probably a marriage rather than having been painted by one person - the sponged decor on the end for the Petite Bretonne is green while the ends for the Petit Breton are blue. Both are in very good used condition with some wear but no other damage. Measuring 3-1/4 inches in length they are being offered for sale as a pair.

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.
