Re: Inkstand, RD 154589, registered on 9 September 1862 by Robert Woods (proprietor) of 6, Angel & Porter Court, Golden Lane, St Luke's, London [EC1]. Class 3: glass.
This seems to have been Woods' only design registration.
Can't find any more info about Robert Woods at the moment. Angel & Porter Court no longer exists (the area suffered extensive damage in the Blitz). There was an Angel & Porter in Golden Lane (records between 1768 and 1809) presumably adjoining Angel & Porter Court.
Grace's Guide for 1929 records William Bernstein (Furriers) of 5-8 Angel and Porter Court, Golden Lane, London, EC1., "Manufacturers of the Mink-Marmot Coat, excellent numbers in Natural Musquash, Squirrel and Mole, good sellers in Beaver, Seal and Musquash Coney, Opossum, etc."
