The Charles Rennie Mackintosh Candida Cottage Chair was part of the series believed to have been designed for the country home of the industrialist W. Basset Lowke. The client proved to be difficult and the design of the table with accompanying chairs was not accepted. Roger Billcliffe, author of the definitive catalogue of Mackintosh's work, feels that judging from the careful detailing of the executive drawings, Mackintosh considered this series as particularly important. Although Mackintosh's architectural output was fairly small he had a considerable influence on European design. Especially popular in Austria and Germany, Mackintosh's work was highly acclaimed when it was shown at the Vienna Secession Exhibition in 1900. It was also exhibited in Budapest, Munich, Dresden, Venice and Moscow.
The Charles Rennie Mackintosh Candida Cottage Chair is a black stain ashwood chair with mother of pearl in-lay. The seat is of woven straw.
