The unusual applied pad mark on this piece is identical to the printed mark recorded for Edward Pearson, active as a potter / porcelain maker. Interestingly, no marked example is known to Godden, leaving a very basic entry in his books. The date range is 1850-73,
In the Schffer Book ‘Encyclopedia of Marks’ there is an identical mark transcribed form a printed example (p301) – our example is an applied clay version. Here they follow him to the United States in 1873, where he opens the Wheeling Potteries in Ohio.
