Surprisingly, given the Mackintoshes close involvement with interior designs for Catherine Cranston's tea rooms, this is the only known menu card by Margaret Macdonald. None by Mackintosh are known. It was designed for Catherine Cranston's restaurant The White Cockade at the Scottish National Exhibition, 1911. The executed menu card (GLAHA 41311) follows this design exactly. Four printed menus are in the collection together with the design. (See also GLAHA 41845, GLAHA 41846 and the final design GLAHA 41131).
