It doesn't look like any mark I could find in the book or in the gallery. It seems to say Mapua, with the P going down to meet between the N and the Z. A very nice plate, with a beautiful glaze:

Whoever made it knew what they were doing Smile
I made an instant connection with the few pieces of Mahana Ware that I've seen, especially regarding the clay.

Perhaps they should go into the Mystery basket until they have been confirmed one way or another.
I jumped to a conclusion, without any support or reference.
Sorry about that. ...

The marks certainly look the same, the only difference being the pentagon around the letters.
