This beautifully stylised work of Art Deco design was made by English pottery Crown Devon. Designed and made during Clarice Cliff's Bizarre era. The stylised tree and landscape verdure décor in this piece echoes that of which appears in Cliff's iconic Orange Roof Cottage series. The décor is further elevated by the addition of the tube-lined and tactile dotted 'stitching'. The origin of design can be attributed to the Czechoslovakian pottery Ditmar Urbach, from which Crown Devon developed its own interpretation.
The subtly striking décor sits against the canvas of the spherical globe form, displaying its timeless style and bringing with it circa 85 years of Art Deco history.
Excellent. There is light use wear, predominantly to the underside of the base and mild crazing all over that is commensurable with the age of the piece, please refer to photos as they form part of the condition report. The base bears Crown Devon's stamp and model number 'M200'.

A BIT OF HISTORY
Crown Devon Fieldings (1870 - 1982)
The pottery was founded in 1870 by Simon Fieldings in Stoke on Trent but it would be 10 years later before they began to produce Majolica style pottery that was popular during the 1880s. Their product range began to expand in the 1890s, working with British United Clock company and they would continue to expand their product range as popularity flourished after successful world trade fairs in the 1900s. They sustained their success for over a century before sadly closing in 1982 at the time of the recession.
