Probably a design registered in a different class but also made in glass. Dates from 1909 though. A link to the listing might help us work out who the maker might have been, Emmi.

Ahhh I think this is the item you mean Emmi?

The number is 543290 not 543291 (that's why eBay search didn't pick it up earlier for me.)

It is described as rare Whitefriars, but can't say I have come across Whitefriars with a registration number before.  The vase is, though, a Whitefriars shape............so I am all confused!

Whoops, sorry Anne, dyslexic today!!

Is the cloudy green a WF colour? It looks like uranium glass to me, but nothing I have in jade has a rough pontil mark.

Edit - Is that sort of green, WF cloudy green?

This has been a mystery for some time and we have gone over it on W/Fs.com i believe .
I have had at least five , never seen one in that colour most are in clear glass some regd some not , i had one in sanctuary blue . I feel the green one is not W/Fs i am sure Nigel was envolved in the disscusion .
