The Willow Tearooms are probably the most famous of Glasgow's many tearooms that opened around the beginning of the 20th century. They were designed entirely by Charles Rennie Mackintosh: he designed the interior, the furniture, internal layout and external architecture as well as the cutlery, menus and the waitress uniforms. The Willow Tearooms are on Sauchiehall Street. The name "Sauchiehall" is derived from "saugh", the Scottish word for a willow tree. This provided the initial design ideas for Mackintosh and his patron Miss Cranston. Willow was the basis of the name for the tearooms and many of the decorative motifs. Our architectural sculpture is of the asymmetric facade.

Each of our architectural sculptures is handmade in our studio in Sussex, England. They are made of strong plaster that has a reassuring weight and smooth, cool feel. The window frames and door are made of etched brass. Stylish ornaments, gifts or presents that are handmade in Britain and look fabulous on a desk, shelf or wall.

Address: Willow Tearooms, 217 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow, G2 3EX, Scotland.
