Charles Rennie Mackintosh used the theme of the willow tree throughout the original Willow Tea Rooms building. One reason for this motif is the name of the street on which the Tea Rooms were built – Sauchiehall Street. ‘Saugh’ is the Scottish Gaelic word for willow tree, and ‘haugh’ means meadow. Mackintosh believed that use of natural form was paramount to the creation of Art Nouveau works. He employed the willow motif to unite the Tea Rooms’ interior and exterior, including the iconic Willow Tea Rooms sign that hangs above the entrance, in his pursuit for a ‘total work of art’.

It was the Cashier’s Chair that caught Moorcroft Pottery designer Emma Bossons’ eye, featuring a stylised willow tree, along with the oval droplets that cascade from the entrance frieze. Emma combined these elements to create her Willow Tree lidded box – an apt shape to use for a tea room-inspired design, being reminiscent of a tea caddy.
