Table

In 1952 it was announced that a prize fund of £5/5/0 had being made available to support a competition amongst the Design students for the commissioning of a new Board Room table. Significantly, it was agreed that the prize be awarded on the condition that the design “should be in keeping with the Mackintosh tradition” and “should be capable of being carried out economically”. The winning design was put forward James Stevenson Hooper, a third year student, and is probably the earliest known example of furniture being deliberately made in the ‘Mackintosh style’. The table remains within the School.

High-back settle

This item was lost in the fire in The Mackintosh Building at The Glasgow School of Art on 23rd May 2014. All that remains is a badly damaged copper repousse panel. This was assessed by a conservator but no conservation work was deemed possible. Settle with high back and wings. The style of the settle is very similar to work produced by Wylie & Lochhead and it is most likely that it was made by this firm. The fabric was probably designed by Samuel Rowe. The woven fabric covering of the settle was woven by the firm of A H Less of Birkenhead in 1897 and is jacquard woven and warp-printed wool and cotton. Warp printing was a special technique used by this firm. Although Lee's bought designs from a numbers of leading freelance designers it is uncertain who designed this particular piece although it is likely to have been by Samual Rowe.

Stained glass cartoon for the church of St Clement and St James, Horsley, near Derby

Stained glass cartoon for a two light memorial window. Inscribed: 'Come Holy Ghost'. For the church of St Clement and St James, Horsley, near Derby.

Bell first designed glass for the firm in 1895 when he won the competition for new windows for the Royal Church at Crathie, and he continued to design for them for twenty-three years. In the 1920s he also designed for the City Glass Company, and examples of his work are still in the Glasgow area.

Scene from Tristan and Isolde

Stained glass panel. Inscribed above: "Glasgow School of Art"; below: "Isolde Mark's wife who gave the love potion to Tristan". It was one of Fra Newbery's considerable achievements to see the need for training students in industrial art and design and persuade the governors to establish a decorative arts department. His annual report of 1893 announces 'This room has been specially fitted up and artist craftsmen have been engaged to give instruction in such subjects as glass staining, pottery, repousse and metalwork, wood carving and book binding, beside Artistic Needlecraft taught by a Lady.' Early teachers of stained glass at the GSA included Norman Macdougall, Harry Roe and William Stewart. Among the students were Jessie Rowat, Emily Hutcheson, Herbert MacNair, Stephen Adam Jr, W.G Morton and Dorothy Carleton Smyth.
