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.

Spotted this tall Bernard Rooke lamp base at Hungerford Arcade this morning. Was tempted, but at £85 it was beyond my price range.

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

Ok, here's the Bernard Rooke frog vase I bought for £10 on Tuesday. Although I'm not sure why I called it a spill vase - brain too mashed from a disappointing fair I guess.
I've no idea when it dates from, but clearly after 1967. If the label gives anyone a clue I'd be pleased to know.

There is a clue on the label with the telephone number being written in that way rather than all numbers. I can't remember when that changed but thinking back it can't have been long after the date he moved to Suffolk.

A quick update.
I've had a reply from Aaron Rooke, who says this dates from around 1979.

Thanks Ed.

well I would lean towards it being handbuilt , I have had many Bernard rooke pieces over the years ,only got one big 6 piece lamp base now and that is an original 1965 ish , Emailing Bernard has always been very helpful or his son , the pieces although quite abundant are worth looking out for especially handbuilt ones .

Funny, I'd always thought of them as cogs or maybe engine wheels
