Clarice Cliff Figurines
In 1930, Clarice Cliff made five different Art Deco figures she called Age of Jazz. Originals sell for over $5,000. Two of the five original figures are being reproduced: #436, piano player and banjo player as well as #432, couple dancing.
Original figures were cut out of a sheet of clay then mounted to a base between raised blocks. New figures are cast as one piece and do not have the blocks. See photos. New figures cost was around $40 each from Pastimes of England.
