2018 marks the 150th anniversary of the birth of Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
The architect and designer will be honoured across Scotland in 2018 - including some major events in his hometown, Glasgow.
*
*
But here at Smithsonia, Birmingham we want to join in the celebrations ! 
We have been selling Mackintosh inspired gifts and jewellery for over 30 years and although the choice to us, and therefore our customers, is smaller these days we still strive to stock a few interesting pieces.
*
*
This magnificent ceramic vase is our latest find - just £39.95 each.
*
Some of his most popular designs have been used to create lovely silver jwellery
*
*
*
*
*
His art has also inspired clock makers
*
*
and we even have compact mirrors to carry in your handbag.

So on June 7th 2018 we will be celebrating 150 years since this wonderfully creative gentleman was born.
Come help us celebrate !
