Johnstone, Jeanes & Co
John Johnstone of Bond Street came to prominence after his collaboration with Robert Jupe, an 'upholder' of 47 Welbeck Street, Cavendish Square, London, who patented a remarkable design for a circular expanding dining table with a segmented top in 1835. After Jupe's death, the firm traded as 'Johnstone and Jeanes' from 1842 until 1880, continuing the tradition of producing high quality furniture. Both the Royal Collection Trust and the Victoria & Albert Museum own stamped pieces of furniture in its' collections.

The firm later became 'Johnstone & Norman', trading until the early years of the twentieth century.
