The mark is now thought to be that of William Lestourgeon (William Lestourgeon & Son, and from c.1771 Aaron Lestourgeon), known suppliers to Parker & Wakelin. See Grimwade 3rd edition, page 757.

I'm probably stating the obvious, but the fish is probably a Sturgeon, indicating that the identification to Lestourgeon is almost certainly correct. Punning images were quite common at the period .
