Originally thought maybe Bernard Rooke. There was another on a selling site exactly the same though, bit sceptical now as no makers mark. It was bought in the Suffolk area so could be? But †need some expertise 🤔thank you. Bernard Rooke, Lacks any makers mark 6c5d0d10

I see a lot on the US studio pottery groups. They seemed to have been made largely for the American Market. Some with quite garish colours

Itís a completely different market from the early Bernard Rooke pottery I get that now and was sceptical as too perfect and similar items out there, as I always say someone will love it 🥰

There were/are a large number of US Airbases around the part of East Anglia where the Rooke family live, hence why it has gone to the States.


I remember going to the showroom years ago and it was full of this stuff and worse.

I remember around 30 years ago a dealer friend on my mine, who lived in East Anglia, used to find American service families selling big lamp bases by Rooke, including the ones on metal poles around 5 feet tall, at Boot Fairs all of the time. Too big to ship back when their tour of duty ended, hence the prices of 50p to £1.
