Design for a music cabinet, for Mrs Pickering, Braxfield, Lanark 1898

RU s. and inscr. in pencil "MUSIC CABINET / FOR MRS PICKERING / BRAXFIELD LANARK / CHARLES RENNIE MACKINTOSH DES"; inscr. in pencil t.r. "22"; inscribed with various other notes and measurements DES MACKINTOSH, Charles Rennie; (Scottish; 1868-1928) This drawing of a music cabinet for Miss Pickering, Braxfield, Lanark, was almost certainly designed in 1898. It shares stylistic similarities with the cabinet Mackintosh designed for Alex Seggie, Edinburgh, during the same year. The leaded glass panel has a pointed projection at the top. The cornice continues down the sides of the cabinet and the panel at the bottom of the music cabinet is either stencilled or embroidered and is related to the two panels in the Seggie cabinet - see GLAHA 41790.
