Charles Rennie Mackintosh designed chair made under the
supervision of Dr Thomas Howarth, Toronto.
High quality reproduction hall chair designed by Charles
Rennie Mackintosh for Hill House made under the supervision of Dr
Thomas Howarth. Dr Howarth was responsible for bringing the work
of Mackintosh back in to the public consciousness and built up
probably the finest private collection of his works.
Howarth emigrated to Toronto in 1958, later using pieces from his
collection to supervise some high quality and faithful
reproductions, one of them being this beautiful chair, made of oak
with a rush seating.
"This armchair is a reproduction of one of a set of three that
were originally created for the entrance hall of Hill House, the
house in Helensburgh Scotland, designed by Charles Rennie
Mackintosh and completed in 1904.
Thomas Howarth, academic, architectural
historian, collector (England 1914, - Toronto 2000)
