Could this pot be by Maria Thompson?

Post  10kazam on Sat 30 Nov - 14:54

I posted this on Identifying Australian Pottery, and a member suggested the mark could be Maria Thompson's.  I'm hoping you may be able to confirm or otherwise.  My only questionmark is the painted bottlebrush - do you have these plants in NZ?

Hi 10kazam
Nz do have a bottlebrush plant - Sorry not much help with Maria Thompson Smile 
But re:- uploading Photos... I got lost when I first tried to upload a photo, but I found these instructions really helpful. Good Luck !

I found kazam's post on the Aussie Marks site and saw the photo. It certainly looks like the Maria Thompson mark that is in the NZ Potters' Marks book, though I am not familiar with her work. The jar looks like it was made by a feminine hand.

I did try posting photos here. But got stuck when it came to point 7. I will copy/paste the link to my post. It is pot #4.
