It's hard for me to tell if this is Studio Pottery or Commercial Pottery.
I'm adding this to the Commercial Pottery category and please correct me if I'm wrong.

That is the third Divine reference that I've seen recently and I'm not even sure that they are all the same potteries.
The above looks more like a handwritten name, so perhaps this is Studio Pottery?
We need to clarify the three Divine potteries now ......

This doesn't look like Vincent and Dixie's work to me. I used to know them when they lived in Dunedin. Their last names are Forster and Tunnicliff.

Seems they stamp the base with New Zealand, and are now being sold on Trade me as Crown Lynn! https://www.trademe.co.nz/a/marketplace/pottery-glass/porcelain-pottery/crown-lynn/other/listing/4439036958?bof=XvhjlytD

I saw that listing and the shape isn't a Crown Lynn one and wondered what was going on.
At first I thought they had perhaps bought CLynn bisqued stock when they closed, but this is not one of their shapes.
Of course they can stamp their work however they want to.
CLynn mostly used Made in New Zealand on the base, but some like the pieces made at Luke Adams just had New Zealand like this jar.

The shape of the caddy itself reminds me of Sanderson Rangiora (Xtatic).
