Tim has confirmed that the other mark is Andrew van der Putten's which means your large mug was made between 1968 and 1970 when Andrew was working with Len.
Oh happy day Kat cheers

Thanks not my first Len Castle find..I hesitated over a chipped Jug for $5 once & when I went back it was gone..the disappointment has kept my eyes open for this mark ever since! I found these marks together in the Marks of NZ Potters book too(pg 126)..once I knew who I was looking for. Very Happy
