This tea caddy has been my saviour, in that I have been trying to find information on the potter for over a year now. I constantly see pottery with either just the mark, or just the Nelson NZ stamp, and sometimes both as in this case, and have been trying to identify them, but neither stamp gave any clues for me to work with.
A couple of weeks ago, I found this while op-shopping, and put it back, still wondering. Then I overheard a conversation "I must tell Mum what has become of all her pottery" I raced back to the the spot and sure enough, the woman was holding this. So I asked her about it. Problem solved cheers

The strange little mark never gave me any clues, but it belongs to Nina Wilkinson, now retired. It seems she made mostly domestic wares,

That mark is quite clearly an 'N' and a 'W', now that we know who the potter is! Wink Nice sleuthing, and what a lucky break!

I've been categorizing marks from a potters marks book so that people can.try to identify them by their characteristics and found that around 60% are stylized initials.

That probably wouldn't have helped in this case, as I couldn't find any record of her mark now that I know. But you are right, of course, as I have a few other marks that have been bugging me, and I now think I have worked them out. Perhaps it would have happened sooner if I posted them all here from the start, but they are coming soon for verification sunny
