I have mentioned this elsewhere.

This bisque is the main building from the Auckland Agricultural Industrial and Mining exhibition held in the Auckland Domain.
The architects were Noel Bamford and Hector Pierce.
The exhibition opened in 1913 and was so successful it carried on into 1914.
Stamps from the exhibition are very collectable.

The bisque is 170mm across. I don't know how big the exhibition hall was.
(Sorry it's so dirty. I'll clean it some time and re-post.)
