Bernard Rooke lamp base

Well, I've written to the great man himself, but there's been no reply. Perhaps he was insulted that I thought this was one of his? But, really, those little wheel-type things say Rooke to me. What do you think?

Apologies to Rooke if it is one of his, but it looks too amateurish to me (not that I'm an expert or anything. Just going on comparison with pics on google & ebay).
If it's a real Rooke it should have an impressed ROOKE mark somewhere on the side.

I have a quite a few of bernard rookes pieces , some do look a bit amateurish but that's part of there appeal , early pieces were not mark and some had just an incised BR, FWIW I think it is Rooke .

Yes, my apologies. Looking through the early ones on Pottery Studio, they do look similar: http://www.studiopottery.com/cgi-bin/pp.cgi?item=2639

Yes, in fact the first one that appears in that link has exactly the same 'wheel' motif. Thanks, all – I feel rather sad that I hauled a piece like this out of the back of a charity shop for £2. It's a work of art.

Posted this in the Bernard Rooke thread, but I'll copy it here as it has the same star circles as your lamp.
