A lovely 11" table lamp - no Bermard Rooke stamps or marks but I'm guessing its by him.

I would like to share this photo of a Rooke pot with you. It belonged to my late mother-in-law and was found when clearing her apartment. Unfortunately another member of the family beat me to it. I was with my mother-in-law back in the early 1970s when we bought it from the mill in Suffolk. Gordon.

Never seen a clock before, 12 1/2 in high, I guess a later piece.
Just a standard cheapo quartz movement.

I could never see the appeal? Wallwork started off in that style however he soon moved on to better things but Rooke never did

They are "of the period" and it's probably the decorator's market that has made them trendy.

Post by petet63 on June 21st 2017, 8:16 am

Bernard Rooke started me off on my buying and selling. I picked up a little Cylinder Vase for 10p, not in the 60's! It was 7 years ago and I thought it said Poole as I had no glasses on. I listed it and sold it for £22. Now I see this piece in an Antique shop for a lot more than 10p!
  I really want to keep it but as we all know if we kept all we liked we could fill the house in weeks!

interesting piece. The Rooke's must have been some of the most commercially savvy studio potter's around. That blue pooling is very much of its time. I have got pieces with similar effect from both Robin Welch and Eileen Lewenstein. 70's? Presumably they made rather attractive ashtrays.

Could be an ashtray. The mould is the same used on the totem lampbases so maybe they just had some elements left over and sold them off separately.

This covered dish is hefty... it's the weight of a brick and is around 12cm tall.

And another piece you wouldn't want to drop on your toes. It stands about 18cm tall.
