We have a Philip Hadfield in the Gallery and perhaps this is another of his marks on the big platter?

The CL is familiar, but I'm brain dead atm .... hopefully something will come to me.

Gosh the hand writing is very different isn't it? I need some more convincing...

I agree that they are not exactly the same. I was wondering if the hand had changed over time, but my the two things that are similar, are that at first glance it looks like KMG rather than King on both, and that neither g has a tail. I was thinking of all the Waimea pottery I have seen, and I don't think any one had exactly the same Wp as another. Will keep searching.

Just to add that Waimea Pottery had an endless stream of potters working there and they all signed their work WP and that is why they look different. Yes we will look out for more confirmation on the King mark.

Could this be the same mark - it is unclear, but maybe? https://www.flickr.com/photos/ningarchive/6988510131/in/set-72157629655363023
