This is a design from the art deco period of the 1930s and it makes me think of very early spring. Now I know many of you are still battling the elements of a cold, hard winter, but my bulbs have popped up already. The teacup trio was made by Melba China, England who did their best work, in my opinion during the art deco era. The design is in grey transferware that has been extensively hand painted or hand colored. I just love it.

To go with the art deco mood, here is an artist signed tall coffeepot or teapot I found at an antique market in Gloucester, England by someone I feel sure had been influenced by Clarice Cliff. The pot is dated 1933 and is all hand painted. I love it! Notice the little cottage with the smoking chimney on the bottom left?
