Air New Zealand had pottery made by different companies including Royal Doulton:

Crown Lynn:

and the stylised whale pattern:

Air New Zealand Air_nz13

Air New Zealand Airnz_10

Small dishes with this last pattern were presented as souvenirs in boxes that included an explanation of the derivation of the design: "The motif on the enclosed complimentary ceramic dish depicts the stylised Maori representation of the head of a whale or tohora. This old design, symbolising abundance, traditionally dominated the elaborately carved facia boards of food storehouses (pataka) in the fortified villages of the New Zealand Maori, whose artistry is among the most advanced of the Polynesian people."

Googling combinations of tohora, pakake, pataka and maihi brings up a range of sources for info on the design.

I found another pair of these - this time one has three holes in the top rather than the single hole I've seen before:

Production records from 1972 to 1981 show that 594 beakers were made (shape 1134)
I'm researching a brown Air New Zealand pattern that has Maori graphics and noticed your post ....
