Lot 226: Sold for £11,000 hammer

Estimate £5,000-£7,000

Clarice Cliff - Bowling - An 18" ribbed charger circa 1929, hand painted with green and blue motifs over a brown, orange, yellow, green blue and black banded ground, Bizarre mark, width 45.5cm.

N.B - Bowling is one of the rarest of Clarice Cliff's patterns and certainly one of the rarest abstract designs. To date there are less than ten examples of this pattern known to exist and the design has never been seen on an 18" charger making this an exceptionally rare find. The piece was privately consigned, having been in the same family from new. It was originally purchased by the current owner's Aunt who was from the Potteries.
