yes XB
luckily I got mine from a dealer who had bought a large collection of Shelf pottery so although it was an unusual design ( which was the reason I picked it) the glazes,decoration and clay were a perfect fit for Shelf.
Freaky that I hardly ever look at mine but yesterday my wife and I discussed it over breakfast.

Thanks Dan - that's so useful. It is such an unusual design & I picked it up for exactly the same reason. It reminds me a bit of prehistoric cave paintings.
I'm not familiar with Shelf so see what I can find on line. Thanks again.

the three legged stag may have roots in prehistoric sub - Saharan culture, I have seen clay animals from Mali that share the tripod form

Hi thanks for the tip. Had a pleasant half hour refreshing on his stuff earlier and it is lovely. Couldn't find anything quite the same and frustratingly the mark is a little obscure. Thanks

Definitely Bernard Rooke. Not the best of his pieces tho. He was also very prolific,as his sons also worked at the pottery and produced work under his imprimatur. The most prized pieces nowadays are the very large lamp bases, which are now very much design pieces. There was an exhibition in Peterbrough a few months ago.

the fact that Rooke pottery can be mistaken for Shelf and vice versa speaks volumes

I've just come into possession of a huge Shelf Pottery Lamp. It's 70cm tall and 40cm wide. Bulb fittings on the interior and exterior. I'm currently waiting for a 50cm retro looking shade to arrive in the post. I'm very pleased with it. Has anyone else seen a piece of Shelf Pottery this large before?

I've just received this lovely email from Graham Alcock, the original owner/designer at Shelf Pottery. This certainly explains the unusual size of the above lamp. I'm clearly very lucky to have it.

imagine the info Graham could add to our Shelf thread if he joined the forum.....
Perhaps we should all invite potters to join? Especially the ones who's careers have not been documented before
