Pearsons of Chesterfield

I have a large ball vase with this distinct 'Trade Mark' stamp, but nothing came up when I googled.
Does anyone know the maker? Thanks Pete

I've never been convinced it's a spinning wheel. If you look carefully it looks as
though someone is turning the big spoked wheel, which is connected via belt and
pulleys to a table which looks like a potters wheel, with a worker throwing a pot.
It would be more appropriate for a pottery mark.

Everyone calls it the "Spinning wheel" mark however, this one is more typical
with the full name included.
John Spencer who had designed for the Langley Mill pottery before the war, continued
at Pearsons in the 1950s. this 10 in example is typical of his sgraffito style.

Compare it to the Langley example here.

I don't have much info on Pearsons, but one designer was Nina Watson.
I have seen cottages and ashtrays with animals on, usually signed.

My little pot is rather plain, but a typical Pearsons shape.
