Clarice Cliff

Coming from a private collector in Kent, Sworders’ Design Department is excited to present a consignment of Clarice Cliff Lotus and Isis jugs. The collection features iconic and sought-after patterns such as ‘Secrets’, ‘Branch & Squares’, ‘Blue Chintz’, ‘Yellow Japan’ amongst others.

Clarice Cliff's humble beginnings of hand painted floral motifs were severely influenced by her visit to the pivotal 1925 Exposition des Arts Decoratifs in Paris, and the subsequent aesthetic developments of the late 1920s. In a matter of years, her motifs quickly developed into the diverse and vivid abstract patterns she has since become synonymous with.
