Eric Knowles Comments

Dolly Cliff was the elder sister of Clarice Cliff and was already working at Wilkinsons prior to Clarice joining the company. Lesser known as her now famous sister she worked as an artistic director and her known designs are far more restrained yet tasteful. Her other talents include being an accomplished seamstress and an exhibition ballroom dancer well known in the Potteries area. Clarice is credited with designing the conical shape sifter which she applied to many of her designs to good effect.
