Decorative design c.1896

RU DES MACDONALD, Margaret; (English; 1864-1933) or MACDONALD, Frances; (Engish; 1873-1921) This design is probably for a piece of beaten metalwork. In the 1890s Margaret and Frances Macdonald worked closely together, sharing a studio from 1896-9 at 128 Hope Street, Glasgow, from which they produced metalwork to their own design. Their work from this period is often indistinguishable. This design may have been for a wall sconce or the base of a candlestick.
