Menu card for Miss Cranston's 'White Cockade Restaurant' 1911

RH s. b.l. "MARGARET. / MACDONALD. / MACKINTOSH / INV. ET. DELT." DES MACKINTOSH, Margaret Macdonald; (English; 1864-1933) PRINT Carson & Nicol Ltd. Surprisingly, given the Mackintoshes close involvement with interior designs for Catherine Cranston's Tea Rooms, this is the only known menu card by Margaret Macdonald. None by Mackintosh are known. It was designed for Catherine Cranston's The White Cockade restaurant at the Glasgow International Exhibition, 1911. The executed menu card follows the design of GLAHA 41131 exactly. Four printed menu cards are in the collection together with the design. (See also GLAHA 41775,, GLAHA 41846 together with the design GLAHA 41131).
