Honeyman, Keppie & Mackintosh designed a drawing-room fireplace for a large terraced house in Huntly Gardens in Glasgow's West End. The job-book entry suggests that no structural alterations were made during its construction. No documentation other than the sparse job-book entry survives.

Authorship: The work was most probably carried out by Mackintosh: the job-book entry is entirely in his hand and he undertook several other similar fireplace commissions, including those at Warriston, Paisley and at 3 Lilybank Terrace.

Cost from office job book: £17 3s 0d
