Oval table

Oval table, designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1869-1928). 1902. 24 inches (61cm); length: 36 1/4 inches (92 cm); depth: 19 3/4 inches (50 cm). Lacquered white wood with leaded glass inserts. A similar table.was made for the Warndorfer Music Salon, Vienna. Roger Billcliffe suggests that this table may have been Mackintosh's own, made for the 1903 Moscow exhibition, arranged by Diaghilev. This conclusion is based on the fact that most of the other Mackintosh exhibits in Moscow were his own.
