Footnote: F.G. Collinson and G.J. Lock established the company in the 1860s. They achieved early success, employing and collaborating with some of the leading designers of the Aesthetic Art Movement. This included the architect T.E.Collcutt, who designed their new premises, Christopher Dresser, Stephen Webb (their senior designer), H.W. Batley and A.H. Mackmurdo. Alongside this avant garde production they were also famous for their antique marquetry furniture, incorporating rosewood, ivory and Pietra Dura marble mosaics (a 16th century Renaissance art form). Collinson & Lock also produced some outstanding international exhibition pieces. An ebonised antique cabinet, shown at the London International Exhibition in 1871, was purchased for the V & A museum and they exhibited a number of Anglo-Japanese pieces by E.W Godwin at the 1878 Paris Exposition.
