As soon as I saw this little beauty at Jill's shop ($3!) I knew what I was looking at:
an ink pot by Orzel or Adelaar.

A not committal "New Zealand" impressed diagonally across the base.
(Even with a third hand to help me it's still a terrible photo, I know, but I guarantee that's what it says.)

I know this glaze was used under both names Orzel and Adelaar so with just "New Zealand" to go on I won't commit further.

The matter of inkpots has been discussed in a JanPots topic
( http://newzealandpottery.forumotion.net/t4216-2-small-pots-what-are-they-used-for#14597 ). Although originally skeptical that potters were producing inkwells in the 70s or 80s I was convinced when I bought a similar one and was told that they were sold as a novelty item.

"Two ink pots by Orzel"

When I first saw Jan's pots I couldn't help likening them to Orzel's "Manhattan" pieces, and seeing another ink pot, in a well known Orzel glaze, incline's me even further in that belief.

I think I'm going to have to change my mind about these.
Having discovered the Abbeville pots posted by DaSiEm
http://newzealandpottery.forumotion.net/t2478-abbeville-new-zealand#7261
and now this lot I think it fair to assume all of this shape of pot was produced as packaging.

These are all a match for the small pot which I previously assumed to be an inkwell. That sits atop five new pots here.
The new ones have no marking, not even the "New Zealand" of the first one.
The glaze is shinier, lighter on sand, and just a little bit different.
They all came with corks and vestiges of glue from stickers.

I've never considered these to be inkwells Jeremy, because Orzels didn't start to manufacture until 1971 and ballpoint pens were in everyday use well by then. I would suggest that these are jars that contained something edible.
One day I will ask Bev Brown when I bump into her!
