Having checked out the Ceramic Electric Jugs on this site and over at the Aussie site http://electricjugs.ning.com/ there are only a few that were made in New Zealand compared to the huge selection made in Australia.
These were made by Crown Lynn/Ambrico, Temuka/Neeco, Luke Adams and McSkimmings/Benhar.

TEMUKA
Thanks to Temuka for stamping these jugs so clearly, as they are easily recognised.  They have a Bakelite lid with Neeco written on it.

Temuka/Neeco made ceramic kettles from the 1930's to the 1950's.
Here is a beauty from the South Canterbury Museum -

Temuka also produced a shape similar to the shape that Ambrico made, but with their distinctive mottled glazes and these had a Beelectrics sticker on them ....

McSkimmings/Benhar

This is the only shape that I can find that was made by McSkimmings, but I would think that there would be more.

Luke Adams

This is the only photo I could find for a Luke Adams Electric Jug and I can't find any info either to verify that this was actually made in the 1920's like the poster of the photo says.
If you have any info please add it to this topic.

Crown Lynn/Ambrico

Ambrico made electric jugs before Crown Lynn was invented and how lucky for us that they stamped them with the Ambrico stamp.  Photos courtesy of mumof1 -

The Ambrico stamp dates from 1945 to 1948 Jeremy.

No stamp on mine Ev, just the incised numbers. Does that make a difference?

That stamp is easy to date, but without one it's much harder.
Yours probably dates from the later 1940's, but we need more research to verify this.
