The Oak Washstand shown below, was designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh in 1904. The washstand is also a storage unit, as it has shelves and drawers. In Victorian times, hand washing (personal hygiene) was carried out at this type of washstand. The standard equipment such as a wash bowl, a jug of water and a towel, would be left on the main surface.
This washstand was colourful due to the ceramic tiles, also designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh. The combination of tiles, lead beading and natural wood produced an attractive and tactile finish. This piece of furniture is not only functional, but also attractive.
