John Honeyman & Keppie designed a communion table, chair and lectern for this 18th-century church. John Craig probably made the furniture – it is presumably his name which appears in the visit book in connection with this work. No craftsman's name appears in the job-book entry. 1

Authorship: This is one of over 270 jobs carried out in the office of John Honeyman & Keppie (Honeyman, Keppie & Mackintosh from 1901) during Mackintosh's time there. Mackintosh undoubtedly worked on many of these, but there is no specific evidence for his involvement in this case.
