Never seen a clock before, 12 1/2 in high, I guess a later piece.
Just a standard cheapo quartz movement.

I could never see the appeal? Wallwork started off in that style however he soon moved on to better things but Rooke never did

They are "of the period" and it's probably the decorator's market that has made them trendy.

Bernard Rooke Totem Floor Lamp

Post by petet63 on June 21st 2017, 8:16 am

Bernard Rooke started me off on my buying and selling. I picked up a little Cylinder Vase for 10p, not in the 60's! It was 7 years ago and I thought it said Poole as I had no glasses on. I listed it and sold it for £22. Now I see this piece in an Antique shop for a lot more than 10p!
† I really want to keep it but as we all know if we kept all we liked we could fill the house in weeks!

interesting piece. The Rooke's must have been some of the most commercially savvy studio potter's around. That blue pooling is very much of its time. I have got pieces with similar effect from both Robin Welch and Eileen Lewenstein. 70's? Presumably they made rather attractive ashtrays.

Could be an ashtray. The mould is the same used on the totem lampbases so maybe they just had some elements left over and sold them off separately.

This covered dish is hefty... it's the weight of a brick and is around 12cm tall.

A lamp base that stands about 18cm tall.

Anyone know what the numbers on the paper label mean?...

/ 130

1467

I guess the 35/- is the price in old money - 35 shillings (nearly two quid)

I have five Bernard Rooke lamps that I would be interested in selling some and was wondering where would be the best place to try and do that. They all have original lampshades I believe and all marked B.R.
