Clarice Cliff

Clarice Cliff was one of seven children born into a working-class family in 1899 in the industrial town of Tunstall in Staffordshire, in the Midlands of England. ‘Her father worked in the iron industry and her mother took in washing to supplement their income,’ explains decorative arts specialist Natalie Voorheis. At the end of the 19th century there were no fewer than 13 pottery works in Tunstall and, as was usual for girls at the time, Cliff was sent to work in the potteries at the age of just 13. Celebrity collectors include Vogue editor Anna Wintour and actress Whoopi Goldberg. South Africa has many collectors of Clarice Cliff – collecting Clarice Cliff can be a small or large investment.
