Vanessa Bell - Clarice Cliff 1934 Art in Industry/Harrods Exhibitions
An extremely rare tureen designed by Vanessa Bell for the 1934 Harrods and Art in Industry exhibitions.The tureen is in very good condition aside from 2 tiny chips which are not seen on display. One is under the lid and the other on the top rim edge. It measures 10 inches ( 16.5 cm) from handle to handle. It is believed that only 12 sets of each design were produced.
Bride Sarah's background in the food industry played a large part in this weekend wedding's menu. She developed all the recipes and served the reception meal family-style, with large footed tureens and pedestal bowls passed down the table. In addition to charcuterie, a variety of cheeses, figs, and fresh raspberries is served as an homage to the bride's time cooking in the south of France and as a vegetarian option for groom Andras and other guests.
