    Publications on Renaissance ornament in the 1870's promoted the fashion for certosa style ivory inlay as featured in G.J Oakshott's Details and Ornaments of the Renaissance,1888. Stephen Webb was perhaps the most celebrated designer of this intarsia or certosa inlay and was employed from the mid-1880's by Messrs Collinson & Lock of Fleet Street and Oxford Street.
