The cup that cheers

The cup that cheers

The Willow Tea Room
designed by Macintosh
was thought at the time
to be utterly posh.
When it opened, the salon
had a sculptural relief
by Mackintosh's wife,
a hand-painted gesso.
The Room was famous
for brewed tea leaf
but to their patrons
did not serve espresso.
