Notes:
The simple cube and dome design contains a coloured glass leaf motif. When lit the glass glows and casts coloured shadows. The fixtures were originally made for the Mackintoshes' flat at 120 Mains Street, Glasgow, which was lit by gas. When the Mackintoshes brought them to their next home at Florentine Terrace, Glasgow, they were adapted for electricity by reducing the aperture in the lid. The image shows the item on public display in The Mackintosh House at the Hunterian Art Gallery. This is one of eight examples in the Hunterian Collection.
