Cranston's Queen 46/20 Vase

Numbered Edition

Margaret Macdonald Mackintosh, wife of Charles Rennie Mackintosh, is perhaps overshadowed by her husband’s notoriety, nevertheless, Charles himself would comment on her genius, remarking in a letter to her ‘ You must remember that in all my architectural efforts you have been half of it if not three-quarters of them.’ Widely known for her stencil and gesso pictures, a type of high-relief linear design giving an affect not dissimilar to Moorcroft’s tubelining, for the tearooms that her husband designed for Catherine Cranston in Glasgow. Nicola cleverly depicts one of the four panels from 1909 of the playing cards flanked by court pages, which was set into the walls of the card room in Cranston's house. Elongated Queens circle the vase in flowing gowns of mustard yellow and ruby reds with ebony and ivory intersections for dramatic effect, making this Moorcroft design a trump card for any collection.
