The Willow Wood mirror came to life when designer Vicky Lovatt discovered a photograph of Margaret MacDonald in an Art Deco outfit, including a wide headband with a heart at its centre, taken by her husband, Charles Rennie Mackintosh.

Margaret MacDonald was a leading member of ‘The Four’ – Charles Rennie Mackintosh, James Herbert MacNair, and sisters Margaret and Frances MacDonald – who were key artists of the Arts and Crafts movement. Margaret was inspired by poet and artist Dante Gabriel Rossetti’s work, including his series of sonnets Willowwood. In 1903 the poem lead her to create the gesso panel, O Ye, All Ye Who Walk in Willowwood, in the Salon de Luxe in the original Willow Tea Rooms in Glasgow.

Vicky too was inspired by Rossetti’s poem of lost love, remembrance and reincarnation, and words from it appear in a Mackintosh-style typeface tubelined on ceramic plaques in the corners of her mirror. Other panels pay homage to MacDonald’s original work.

Today MacDonald's original gesso panel resides in the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow. A fascinating academic essay on Rossetti’s poem and MacDonald’s original panel may be found here.

This striking and impressive piece is made to order.
