RD number 30704 was registered by Henry Johnson, Holborn, Glass Maker, on 1 August 1885.
Jenny Thompson (page 132) gives the design description as “moulded glass bowl attached to moulded glass stand”, but this example shows no sign at all of ever having been part of, or attached to, anything.
Henry Johnson also registered :

Does anyone have photos to show of RD 5418 or RD 30345, please?
Does anyone have more information regarding the registrant, especially his links with manufacturers?
