Charles Rennie Mackintosh chest of drawers
An extremely rare, elegant and simply styled, stained cypress wood chest of drawers designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1868-1928) and made by Guthrie & Wells of Glasgow, who were responsible for making CRM’s early pieces; c1897-8...
Mackintosh’s early designs for Guthrie & Wells were very simple and unadorned; highlighted by the beautifully balanced design of the brass drop handles, which clearly show a Chinese influence. The chest is very much in the style of the furniture that his client, William Davidson bought from Guthrie & Wells for his house Gladsmuir, Kilmacolm. A scarce piece of furniture.
