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.

Phil, yes it is, and if you look closely at the grey haired gentleman on the right of the shot you may recognise him! That's Bernard!

No. Main problem with getting to Peterborough at the moment is that they are redoing the A14, and traffic is a nightmare on it.
Wonder if Graham has a warehouse extension to his house? Where would you put all those ginormous Lampbases? Laughter

Hi, Graham.

Perhaps you know what the figures mean on a lamp base I have. (see previous page)...

The £1/15 shillings old money price would date it to pre-decimilisation in 1971. So that would make it made in one of his London studios, as he did not move to Swilliland Near Ipswich until 1973.

Many thanks, Phil

The vase I have has 12V written on the base. I just wonder if Bernard has any kind of record of dates for these numbers.


You mention £1/15 shillings but the lamp base has 35/- on it. Is that what you are referring to?

Before decimalisation it was complicated. There were 240 pence to the £, 12 pence to the shilling and 20 shillings to the pound.
So 35/- is 35 shillings. £1 15 shillings.
Then of course you had half a crown coins. Which were 2/6. 2 shillings and 6 pence.
The coinage actually ran. Farthing. Half Pence. Three pence. 6 pence. 1 shilling. 2 shillings. Half a Crown. 10 shilling paper note. I pound note.

Thanks -- I see where it comes from.

I've just done a rough calculation and it seems that 35/- in 1970 would be equal to about 30 quid today.

Bernard Rooke moved to Swilliland pottery near Ipswich in 1973. This style of decoration dates from then. He worked with his sons, and production was quite substantial. Precise dating is very difficult, but generally the lamp bases tended to be more from the earlier years. But equally this one could be later. Nice Rooke piece, with a lot going on.
For value you would have to check the sold items on Ebay, as we don't give valuations on here.

Definitely not Shelf. Bernard Rooke is most likely. A bit too rough for Hudson. Wallwork is a maybe.
