Vintage Pottery Lamp - Earthy Brutalist Ceramic Table Lamp by Bernard Rooke, 1970s

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.
Modern ceramic table lamp with earthy colored glaze and burlap covered shade. Made by English potter Bernard Rooke (b. 1938--thanks to Paul at Studio Potter Archive for help with identifying this potter!). Different designs all around the base. Funky and kind of brutal, in a good way.

Overall height is 19 ½ inches; shade is 10 inches high, 12 inches diameter; base is 5 inches diameter.

Overall condition is good, but not perfect. There are losses to the ceramic base on the underside of two horizontal elements and one raised ‘button’ is missing. There is minor wear to the metallic finish at the edge of the shade (which is presumably the original), and a tiny bit of fraying at the seam of the burlap.

The lamp is in working condition, but as with all electrical devices, I recommend that you have an electrician take a look at it to make sure all is well. Safety first!

This will be shipped, double boxed, via USPS. The price listed is for shipping to California--if you live on the East coast, the cost will be less.
