I had a look too and seemed like a good match to me, allowing for the variation that tends to occur with incised marks, I also couldn't' find any other contenders

Ok I've removed it from the Marks Gallery until further confirmation comes to hand.
What an interesting lot of marks on that post..... Doris Holland became Doris Lusk didn't she? Is this a whole book of marks Kat? It looks familiar so I may have it ..?

Hello
I am actually one of Merle Hansen's daughter's

Very sad to say that Mum passed away on the 30th June this year (2016) at the age of 87

These dont look like Mum's mark's. I cant say for sure about her very early pieces but
from all the pot I remember she used to just put a square stamped M solely on the bottom of each piece.

Hi Trudy, sorry to hear about your Mum.
The Potter's Marks book has her mark and this mark was probably put forward by your Mum or someone who knew her

http://www.nzpotters.com/PottersMarks/PottersMark_Image.cfm?potterID=600

I have wondered about her mark and if it was correct or not, so it's good that you have noticed it.  Is there any chance at all that you have a piece of her work with her mark that you could add to the site?  In the meantime I will take these marks out of the Gallery and put them into the Mystery Marks.

Hello

Unfortunately I dont have any of Mum's pots (we have been trying to find bits in the last couple of years)

I will ask Dad about her Mark and I know my sister has a couple of pieces so I will take a photo of the underneath that will show the mark.

Give me a week or so - we are still mourning our loss Sad

If you wish to add this to the mark gallery please do so

I have also added a couple of other photos of some of her work

Thanks heaps Trudy, I am pleased to add her mark to the Gallery.
Oh I particularly like that Tea Canister with it's rope handle in the cork.
Very dated, but from a time of wonderful high fired pottery in NZ.
