A Victorian Rosewood and Marquetry Inlaid Oval Table with an Inlaid Ashford Marble Top, Attributed to Collinson and Lock.

Ashford Black Marble is a highly polished jet black bituminous limestone mined in Ashford in the Water, Derbyshire.

During the nineteenth century inlaid furniture and objects using this stone became very popular and a sizeable industry grew up centred around the towns of Buxton and Ashford. Highly skilled stonemasons created intricate and accomplished designs often using semi-precious stones and imported marbles, drawing their inspiration from Florentine Pietre Dure.
