Glass panel by George Walton

A copper and stained glass door panel designed by George Walton (1867-1933) for the luncheon room at Miss Cranston's Argyle Street Tea Rooms.

Cranston (1849-1934) first opened a tea room in Argyle Street in 1878, decorated in a contemporary baronial style. In the late 1890s she took over the whole of the building at 114 Argyle Street and commissioned Walton to redesign the interior in a more modern style. Walton's work at Argyle Street included fireplaces, wall stencils and stained glass for the doors, while another Glasgow artist, Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1868-1928), was responsible for the furniture. The luncheon room walls were stencilled with a rose pattern which was reflected in the stained glass doors.
