Notes:
The washstand is a simple, functional piece, designed for the Mackintoshes' flat at 120 Mains Street, Glasgow. In its new location at their subsequent home at Florentine Terrace, Glasgow, the original splashback would have blocked light from the window, and was removed. The truncated stumps of the side posts can be seen at the back. The image shows the item on public display in The Mackintosh House at the Hunterian Art Gallery.
