Enjoy a Spectacular Exhibition of Carnival Glass that was on display at the ‘Charles Rennie Mackintosh House'
In 1916, when famous artist and architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh remodelled 78 Derngate for its new owner, model maker Wenman Joseph Bassett-Lowke, carnival glass was at the height of its popularity. The Carnival Glass Society selected items for this display that reflect Mackintosh’s designs including stylised flowers and striking geometric lines.
If you didn’t manage to visit this exhibition, then you will have another opportunity to see magnificent examples of carnival glass from this display (and others) at our Annual Social Weekend on 13 to 15 September.
