Mix and Match Vintage Dinner & Salad Plates Collection - Clarice Cliff Dimity Dinner Plates - Springtime Bouquet 1930's & 40's
Having a little fun at my work doesn't make me any less of an artist. Clarice Cliff
Two sets of gorgeous floral plates make up this vintage collection of rare 1930's and 1940's mix and match china. Featuring dinner plates from legendary English ceramic artist Clarice Cliff for Royal Staffordshire that were made in England in the 1930's, and salad plates from Crown Potteries made in America in the 1940's, this set is an international affair of pretty springtime flowers. Handpicked and curated for its Easter egg color palette this combination is both a unique blend of design and color arrangement.
Clarice Cliff was a legend in the ceramics world from the 1920's to the 1960's designing hundreds of eclectic pieces that were admired by collectors the world over. Considered one of the most remarkable ceramic artists of the 20th century, Clarice is revered not only for her artistic merit but also her passion to find beauty in shapes, colors and designs that were considered very unusual in relation to other kitchenwares produced during her lifetime.
