I am not sure but there was a red debutante figurine listed on TRADEME over a long period of time with a tiki mark. Apparently it was made at tiki Pottery in Wanganui a long, long time ago. It may have been in the early 50s.
I have seen a couple of other pots in the same clay as the one Jeremy posted on TRADEME and one at a charity shop in Marton which I didn't buy. They didn't look as if they had been made in the 50s though.

Thanks Ev.

I'm intrigued by hasenuss' comments.

This piece did not look like a 50s one to me so we may be looking for another tiki mark too.

I will look again this Thursday with that in mind and if necessary buy it.

It's pretty small so it won't take up much room.

Gail Henry writes about the Wanganui Tiki Studio Pottery on page 127 in her second book.
Charles and Catherine Terry made slipcastwares for commercial sales in the 1940s and 50s. The small factory was situated in Wilson Street Wanganui.
They marked their wares with an impressed Tiki which might have been taken from the NZ halfpenny coin.

I guess we are looking for two potteries using a Tiki back stamp.
