Collinson & Lock Rosewood Cabinet, c.1880
Item Details
Description
English Aesthetic Movement Rosewood Display Cabinet, Collison and Lock, c.1880, finely carved dentil cornice of moulding, flanked with reeded baluster-shaped shelves, velvet lined interior with fitted shelves. Stamped "7784 Collinson & Lock London" top of interior center door
Biography:The firm of Collinson & Lock was established in London in the third quarter of the Nineteenth century with the partnership of F.G. Collinson and G.J. Lock, former employees of Jackson & Graham.
The company quickly achieved both commercial success and a leading position in the field of design. Influential designers of the 'Art Movement' including: T.E.Collcutt, J Moyr-Smith and Stephen Webb were employed by the company and E.W. Godwin was held on a retainer to produce exclusive designs for the company from 1872 to 1874.
In 1871 the firm issued an impressive illustrated catalogue of 'Artistic Furniture', with plates by J. Moyr-Smith, assistant to Christopher Dresser, and in 1873 was trading from extensive newly built premises in St Bride Street.
As well as providing furniture for important commissions such as the Law Courts and the Savoy Theatre, they exhibited at many of the International Exhibitions of the period. At the Paris Exposition Universelle in 1878, they exhibited a number of items designed by E. W. Godwin. International recognition for their use of fine rosewood and intricate Italianate arabesques was to soon follow.
In 1897, the firm was taken over by Gillows, but continued to produce furniture of this type for several years.
