This barrel is 260 mm long and 200 mm across at the widest point. It has a drip catcher and 5 smallish cups/vessels. There is a distinctive emblem on the front of the barrel and on the stand. Any ideas as to maker?Port/Wine Barrel and Stand is Mapua Ware Nelson Img_5922

Hi Mike, this looks like the Mapua Ware that Waimea Potteries in Nelson made.

Thanks Ev. It is amazing how blind we can be....I have a piece on the bench less than a metre away...same glaze and body. I am sure it is when I see them together.
