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.

A small vase with studio style brushwork. Sadly the mark is not well impressed.

Hi all

I wondered if anyone on here was into Pearsons Pottery (of Chesterfield)

I've come across what I think is quite an unusual piece as i understood Pearsons only really made jugs, bowls, vases and other crockry items.

The bottom of the cottage reads; "Anne Hathaway's Cottage (cant quite work out the next bit) marked Pearsons of Chesterfield Nina Watson.

Pearsons of Chesterfield Thumbn10

Any clues would be appreciated, I can't find anything similar anywhere. I know my late grandmother lived on the same road where the Pearsons Pottery place was so this may be how she came to owning this.

Kind regards

Seems the Company was in operation for a long time, originally making stoneware bottles and tableware. These cottages seem to have been made towards the end of it's life, possibly after the employee buyout in the 1990s. The company ceased trading in 1996.

I have merged this with the pearsons thread.
Yes these are known (see above), I think they are from the 1950s

Quite a late piece from their 175th anniversary year, this is a one-pint tankard made to commemorate the 1985 Chesterfield marathon. Pearsons was possibly the marathon's main sponsor that year, likely as part of its' own anniversary events. Quite a sombre looking piece, all black with gilt decoration.

A nice John Spencer vase from the 1950s, with unusual black accents in the design.
