Buchanan 159/10 Vase

Numbered Edition

Mackintosh first met businesswoman Miss Cranston in 1896 and was given the commission to decorate the Buchanan Street Tea Rooms with mural decorations and new furniture designs. This project marked the beginnings of a combination which was to extend over the next 20 years and was to provide Mackintosh with some of the most important of his commissions.

Here in the mural decorations, symbols and shapes began to emerge. Stylised calla lilies with pure white petals and green stamens stand side by side to create a geometric pattern. Elongated straight lines and dots, dashes and small squares perforated the design, appearing almost like hieroglyphs to be deciphered by the curious diners. Nicola has put her own unique twist on Mackintosh’s linework, as her calla lilies have emerald green centres and red stylised Mackintosh roses adorning the top of this Moorcroft vase.
