Description

The present lot is a rare example of Charles Rennie Mackintosh's designs in the later years of his career, displaying the Artist at perhaps his most modern. Produced for Harry Franklin, director of the engineering firm of W.J.Bassett-Lowke in Northampton, this table is a close variant of an oak dining room suite also designed by Mackintosh for Bassett-Lowke’s own country home, Candida Cottage, Roade in 1918-19. Wenman Joseph Bassett-Lowke, one of Mackintosh’s most important clients at the time, was founder member of the Design and Industries Association, and had a keen interest in modern, progressive design. Bassett-Lowke must have promoted the furniture Mackintosh had designed as two further sets were made, including one for Basset-Lowke's brother F. Jones and the present lot. The original design for this table for Candida Cottage was produced in oak and inlaid with Radolith.
