4.0 out of 5 stars A great introduction to Cliff's designs, 18 Dec 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Taking Tea with Clarice Cliff (Hardcover)
This slim volume is an excellent way to acquaint oneself with the pottery designs of Clarice Cliff, notably of her teapots and tea sets produced between 1925 and 1941. The book is heavily illustrated with full color photos of Cliff's Bizarre ware, with full description of each ceramic shape and range of patterns. As an American, I appreciated the inclusion of Cliff's biography, as well as a history of tea drinking. If you are a tea drinker, a collector, or even if you detest tea but enjoy colorful, bold, geometric ceramics, this book is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars a good introduction to Clarice, 5 Jun 2007
This was the first book that introduced me to Clarice. It's not my favourite, but still special as it's so nicely written. The pictures of teapots and tea ware make me wish to own an unsual set, but I do have some Crocus pieces, her most popular pattern then and now. A good present for someone who does not know about Clarice, but my favourite book is Fantastic Flowers. That has pictures of her home and garden in Staffordshire. Betty

This review is from: Taking Tea with Clarice Cliff (Hardcover)
I sincerely hope that the seller made a shilling on the P&P charge because this book only cost me one penny and was in good condition.
A friend paid 2 at a boot sale for the same book and he thought he'd got a bargain!!
Certainly the seller has earned my support next time I am looking for a secondhand book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little book has aged well, 11 Sep 2006
I bought this book not long after it came out and recently re-read it. It has aged well, really is delightful and beautifuly written. Rene Dale the paintress who wrote the introduction died recently aged 88 and it was good to read her memories of Clarice from 1931. Clarice Cliff pottery is delightfully British, and this book captures that and taking tea very well.
