The following four lots of wrought-iron gasoliers have been removed from Glencruitten house, Argyll. The house, first built in 1897 and later purchased by the entrepreneur and art collector Robert Mackay was extensiveley redesigned in 1927-28 by Robert Lorimer one of Scotlands most noted architects. Along with Mackintosh's, his was the first distinctively Scottish style in the arts and crafts taste to emerge for over a century. Two of Lorimers most famous public works are in Edinburgh: the Thistle Chapel in St Giles Cathedral, and the National War Memorial at the Castle.
It is not known whether the gasoliers were original to the house in 1897 or installed by Lorimer in 1927-8.
