I realise there is hardly anything on this site about Waipapa Potteries. I am wondering who they were - perhaps Signal Red might be able to help out here?
There is a FAINT possibility that Lilian Jones and Waipapa were one and the same, but probably not.  
Here is a duo by Waipapa. The saucer has the Waipapa Potteries mark.  Below it a mug by the same decorator which carries a squiggle signature.

And woops forgot to add these Waipapa egg cups. The mark has $1 scrawled over it with a black marker so it is not really suitable for the gallery of marks, sorry Ev. Hopefully someone else has a clean version of this mark.

Thanks to Signal Red, we now know that Waiapa Potteries was owned by Lily Jones. Lilian was bought out by Studio Ceramics and moved to Auckland to work at Studio Ceramics for some years as a designer/artist.
Her designs at Waipapa included Damson Plum, Persimmon and Citrus.
Here is a brochure which Signal Red has copied and sent to me.
