‘This is a book for collectors and fans to pore over … even those who fail to worship at the altar of Cliff will find a greater and more exciting range of designs than they might have imagined’ – The World of Interiors

‘First class … for collectors, this has to be 'the bible'’ – The Lady

The dazzling ceramics of Clarice Cliff have become one of the great collectables from the twentieth century. The exuberant colours and bold shapes of her classic Art Deco pieces have caught the imagination of collectors the world over as prices move inexorably upwards.

The result of years of research both in the Wilkinson archives and through oral testimonies of surviving employees, Greg Slater has produced a massive reference work which identifies the pattern name, designer, date and decoration method of all the significant pieces, and a host of lesser known ones.

Over 600 illustrations – all fully referenced and indexed
