I have a jug with a round stamp on the base which reads "Richmond Federated Potteries" & "Made in Australia".
Is it possible that it is connected with NZ Richmond Pottery?

The piece is a character jug of Prime minister Bob Hawke. I would assume it was made in the early to mid 1980's.

Any ideas would be most appreciated.
Cheers Scott

Wow that is really great!!

I haven't seen a Richmond New Zealand mark like that one.

Here is a Gallery of the Richmond NZ Pottery and Marks ..

I think this would have been made by an Australian Pottery, but I can't find the name in the Australian Potter's Marks.

My only advice would be to ask on the Australian Pottery Discussion on Facebook.
