Overview

Over 420 color photographs illustrate the wide range of wares made available by Cliff, Cooper, Murray, Rhead, and those at Carlton: designers whose creative genius surfaced during the Art Deco years and recently met with a resurgence in popularity. The early twentieth century, following World War I, was a time of experimentation and radical change in the arts. After World War II, the revolutionary modernist movement began. Yet, despite the changing times, Cliff and her contemporaries maintained their position of influence. This book traces the artistic heritage of these designers and their sources of inspiration. By examining these designers' works and patterns, collectors gain a new appreciation for their talents, adaptability, and creative genius. Throughout this book, detailed observations regarding the artistic merits suggest reasons for the continuing popularity of these designs. In addition, historical information on the factories, a price guide, and vital information on forgeries make this book a valuable resource for both the beginning and advanced collector.

Editorial Reviews

Amy D'Orio
Clarice Cliff, she writes, "wanted her designs to have visible brushstrokes, so it is essential that the reader be provided with detailed photos to understand the intricate patterns." With its large print (including the captions for photographs), Schiffer has produced an easy-to-read guide good for the novice collector as well as the dealer seeking a book to aid in sales.
