One for my little architecture collection.

Slipcast model of Pompallier House in Russell as per John Stacpoole's recreation, prior to Fergus Cluny's restoration as a Catholic Mission, tannery and printing house.

I'm adding this mark to the Mystery Marks Jeremy as it is most unusual to see a Copyright symbol on pottery and it may help to find the maker ..... one day.

I wonder if HCR is the organisation that administers Pompallier House? Historic C-something Russell? Fergus Clunie is in Sydney now - has been for a few years - and for a time he managed Rouse Hill Farm, another historic site. In Russell he had site specific products made to generate income for the organisation and famously annoyed local Anglicans with a brochure he produced that was less hagiographic of Samuel Marsden than the church's view at the time. I think the brochure was recalled.

Fergus' clashes with Sitiveni Rabuka are legend in international museology.

Tony,
I was on the NZ Historic Places Trust Northland Branch Committee when Fergus was restoring the Kerikeri Mission Station, formerly known as Stone Store and Kemp House.

He got lots of peoples backs up during that process, as he had previously with Pompallier, particularly the older committee members.

Personally I love the purity his work and found his manner amusing.

There may have been a separate group dealing with funding of Pompallier as you suggest. In my time I think everything was just NZHPT. This piece may not have been official NZHPT merchandise: I simply do not know.

I think I may have to correct the spelling of Fergus's surname.
Pompallier is a problem too as it is sometimes spelled with one L sometimes two and I forget which is correct: I think Pompallier Terrace in Ponsonby had different spellings on the signs at each end at one time.
