Anne and Tigerchips, your posts were so interesting, I have done some more digging since.
To summarise

It seems our David Strasburger – Regent of London, Regent of London Ltd, Regent Products, DS Products, Regent Jewellers (London) etc. had a relative, likely a brother/cousin: Lionel Strasmore previously Lion Strasburger and his wife Anna Strasburger nee Traubover who also dealt in fancy goods and held partnerships/companies;

Riede, Strasburger & Weissberger.
L. Strasmore Limited.
Lionel Strasmore (London) Limited. - Company Number 00647817
A. Strasmore (1952) Limited.


and possibly one two or all of them held;
Lissco Products Limited.
Delina Lissco Limited.


Dressing Table Sets/Dresser Sets and Brush sets with patented detachable brushes remarkably similar to Regent of London sets, are also to be found with Delina or Lissco Products Ltd labels/paperwork/boxes, sometimes including glass trinket/cream/powder jars/pots and trays all Made in England.

The Graces Guide link above to the British Industries fair 1947, shows L Strasmore directly underneath David Strasburger at the same address of Kent House 87 Regent Street London W.

L. Strasmore
of Kent House, 87 Regent Street, London, W. Telephone: Regent 3458-9. Cables: "Elstralite, London"

1947 British Industries Fair p265

Elstralite caught my eye, and research shows lighters can be found bearing this name also Elstra-Lite and Strasmore Lighters sometimes with a mark RM co inside a five point star, and Made in England and some with Regd Design No 847726. I have seen photos of a Strasmore Classic Lighter, an Elstralite Gem Lighter and an Elstralite Prince Lighter.

The names Strasburger and Strasmore are/were rather rare and unique in the UK and easily traced on Free BMD (Births Marriages Deaths) I have added ages to give a better picture.

Searching info and images for an elusive 12-15 Kent House, 87 Regent Street, Kent House appears to have disappeared almost completely from the internet and maps, the current Regent Street address houses Hunter Boots and Hollister and Co within 83-97, no mention of Kent House.

The current Postcode for 87 Regent Street W1B 4EN =  83-97 (Radnor House 83-85=Hunter) (87-97 = Hollister) again no mention of Kent House.
https://www.ukpostcodes.net/city-of-london-greater-london/london/regent-street/87/

There are several other Kent House addresses in London, the main (irrelevant) one that appears while searching for Kent House 87 Regent Street is;
Kent House 14-17 Market Place Fitzrovia London W1 built 1938 currently housing Reiss Clothing.
