From the very special collection of Manos..  this, according to page 74 of Gail Henry's book New Zealand Pottery, was modelled by T N Lovatt around 1948 and said to have been used for colour trials and made in very small numbers - maybe 20 to 30.  This is a very rare and special piece.

That is truly lovely. I have the green one, and a few other pieces given to my family by Tom Lovatt, or Uncle Tommy as my Mum calls him, as he and my Grandparents were friends from his days in Wellington when my Great uncle worked for him and later from him when he went to Temuka. I had the photos in the gallery of the old web site form but they haven't carried over to here. I have only just re found this page.

That is wonderful to hear ccrk9 as there are not many of these around.
I'm not sure what you mean about the old web site, as this site hasn't changed since it was started nearly 8 years ago.
