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

Sticking my neck out and claiming this two foot tall lamp as the work of Bernard Rooke.  It hasn't got a potters mark but there's enough lamps on this site attributed to Rooke that have the same motifs, clay/glaze colours, etc for me to be confident.  Would be interested to know when it was likely to have been made?
