I have been making some inquiries and have eventually found out that the company who did the work on my Colnago Master were Autostrada Engineering based in the Midlands

That is simply stunning!
I still haven't made my mind up about brown bar tape, but its not my bike and it would be boring if everone did the same.
You have done a really nice job on that.

Lovely stuff, agree with the with"every did the same" observation, but why do the brake cables not go over the bars?

Lovely bike. Even with the brown bar tape it's still a lovely bike! I'll bet it rides beautifully as well.
