    Attributed to a well-known London maker, Collinson & Lock, famous for this type of work and HIGHLY sought after.

    The firm Collinson & Lock was founded in the late 19th century by F.G. Collinson and G.J. Lock, both of whom were former employees of Jackson & Graham.

    The company manufactured furniture for the likes of the Savoy Theatre and the new Law Courts, and a variety of their furniture items were featured at the Paris Exposition Universelle exhibit in 1878. Some of the many furniture designers who were employed by the firm include E. W. Godwin (who was paid a retainer to produce designs for the company from 1872 and 1874), T.E. Colcutt, Stephen Webb, H.W. Batley, and many more.

    Webb designed for the firm between 1885 and 1897 and exhibited at the Arts & Crafts Society Exhibitions from 1888 to 1906. He was also a member of the Art Workers Guild. Webb is now best remembered for his designs of intarsia, which he normally executed in ivory. Much of the furniture which was decorated with Webb`s inlaid work was designed by the firms founding partner J. S. Lock.
