Footnotes

  • This cabinet appears in a room setting from the catalogue of Gillows catalogue of circa 1900 illustrating of group of similar furnishings inlaid in ivory.


    The firm of Collinson and Lock were established in Fleet Street in 1870 and were to become one of the leading manufacturers of 'Art Furniture' employing designers such as Bruce Talbert and E.W Godwin, merging with Jackson and Graham in 1882. Stephen Webb designed for the firm between 1885-1897 and exhibited at the Arts and 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 as seen on the above lot, which were normally executed in ivory, the designs for which appeared in the 'Art Workers Quarterly' in 1902. Most of the furniture which was decorated with Webb's inlaid work was designed by the firms founding partner J.S Lock. Webb stayed with the firm after the takeover by Gillows in 1897 eventually leaving to become Professor of Sculpture at The Royal College of Art.
