A quote from the Langley mill pottery book.

"Langley pottery was imitated by many potteries both at home and overseas. in
about 1912, the Bendigo pottery nr Melbourne Australia, even called one of their
ranges "Langley Ware", as it was a direct imitation of the original"

Similar shaped Bendigo pot...different maker though. From the info provided in the link by dd, looks like the throwers initials are Ken Tresize  (worked there 1972-82).
