Ceramic Table Lamp with Original Shade by Bernard Rooke, England

$2,439.99

About

Table lamp by British ceramic artist Bernard Rooke, together with its original rattan-covered shade. England, 1970s. The ceramic base - broadly circular in shape - is mould-formed with abstract decoration in a mixture of glazes/finishes in natural tones of terracotta, brown and warm grey. Overall the piece is in good vintage condition, with minor age-related wear and the Rooke stamp to the base. New wiring is required and we advise this is carried out in the country of install to ensure it meets your local needs and regulations; we recommend the use of low-heat bulbs to protect this piece for the future. The original shade - quite rare to see now - is in good shape, with occasional losses to the cane and stitching on the outside. There are light dents and areas of staining to the lining of the shade, and the seam of the liner is loose, but these areas of wear do not appear to have passed through to the outside. The shade is complete with its original duplex carrier which fits over the bayonet-fitting switched lamp-holder. The shade is included in the listing, but if you prefer not to take it, please let us know and we will adjust the shipping costs accordingly. Approximate dimensions: Ceramic only: H 36cm x W 30cm x D 13cm Shade only: Height 34.5cm x Diameter 36cm Overall: Height 73.5cm x Diameter 36cm Bernard Rooke was born in 1938, and studied ceramics at Goldsmiths College. In 1960 he set up a workshop in Forest Hill in south London, sharing with another pottery artist, Alan Wallwork. Rooke made progressive sculptural work and early pieces were hand-formed using coils and blocks. His work is found in private collections as well as museums and galleries around the world, including the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
