The notecards in this set reproduce the Four Queens gessoed panels by Margaret Macdonald Mackintosh that originally graced the walls of the Hous'hill card room, the Glasgow residence that her husband Charles Rennie Mackintosh designed for art patron Catherine Cranston, and are now in the collection of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. The decorative boxed set contains 20 notecards (five each of four designs), blank inside, measuring 5" x 7" with 20 envelopes. The reproductions are of "Queen of Diamonds", "Queen of Spades", "Queen of Hearts", and "Queen of Clubs" by Margaret Macdonald Mackintosh. In a letter to his wife, Charles remarked, “You must remember that in all my architectural efforts you have been half if not three-quarters of them.” He believed that while he had talent, Margaret had genius.
