Incredible to think I've just emailed Bernard Rooke in person!? Reminds me of that scene in the film "4 weddings and a funeral" where Simon Calow tells an american lady he will give her Oscar Wildes fax number!! Mad!

In the 1960s when Bernard rented a space in Greenwich from Alan Wallwork he secured a contract with a department store in Bromley, Kent called Dunn's to supply lampbases (alongside a lampshade supplier). Therefore the lampbase would have been from that time and the ones that I have seen with the teak surrounds have had both rectangular and square tiles.

Studio Vase - Wallwork

Post by jonbearwood on April 9th 2012, 5:01 pm

Picked this up today at Malvern. Looks very much like Alan Wallwork - I have other Wallwork pieces with similar decoration but sadly no mark on this one. A second maybe?

They both did this sort of thing when Bernard rented the basement from Alan in Greenwich. The decoration often included letters from their surnames and that and the lack of a mark would mean that my money is on it being Bernard Rooke.
