Clarice Cliff Teapot

A tribute to the legendary CLARICE CLIFF TEAPOT!

Clarice Cliff TeePee Teapot

The way I see it, this Clarice Cliff teapot designed by Betty Sylvester is a thing of beauty.

Cliff is famous for hand-painted china patterns. Her early work boasts bold colours and whimsical designs. Look for patterns like “Bizarre”, “Crocus” and “The Biarritz”. Those are highly collectible.

After 1945, Cliff produced less expensive and more readily available transferware. It’s often featured at antique shops and tag sales so look for Clarice Cliff patterns like: “Tonquin” and “Rural Scenes”.

I’ll share more about my favourite Clarice Cliff transferware pattern in an upcoming post.

This teapot is loaded with eye candy! It has an interesting cone-shaped central vessel complete with a teepee topper. The addition of a totem pole handle and a gazing Indian figure spout complete the function of this one-of-a-kind teapot. The final details include a run of moose around the base and a bold, colourful Canadian maple leaf.

That’s it for me – my kettle is whistling and it’s teepee teapot tea time! (say that five times fast!)
