Chisel & Mouse make architectural models of beautiful and iconic buildings from London landmarks like Battersea Power Station to American classics like the Empire State Building. Each and every piece is handmade in Britain and is of extremely high quality. They are also very stylish and will look wonderfully eye-catching at your home. These models will make a fabulous gift for anyone who appreciates architecture and design.
Each and every piece is made of strong plaster that is surprisingly rather weighty. They are very smooth and cool to the touch, not to mention full of exceptional detail. I had the pleasure of receiving the Cincinnati Union Terminal (£109.00) – Cincinnati holds a special place in my heart! This piece absolutely oozes quality, and it has now taken pride of place in my living room in full view.
Chisel & Mouse say –
â€œThe Cincinnati Union Terminal is a passenger railroad station. Cincinnati was a major centre of railroad traffic but that traffic was split over five stations. A decision was taken in 1928 to construct a union station. The principle architects were Alfred T Fellheimer and Steward Wagner. However, architects Paul Philippe Cret and Roland Wank were brought in as design consultants and Cret is credited with the building’s art deco style. It features the largest semi-dome in the western hemisphere measuring 180ft wide and 106ft high. The building is now home to a much reduced passenger rail terminal as well as museums, theatres and a library. Cincinnati Union Terminal was voted the 46th most popular architectural work in America in a 2007 American Institute of Architects poll. Our architectural model is of the fabulous art deco entrance facade.â€
I adore this model, and look forward to showing it to my dear friends from Cincinnati. Every detail, right down to the window frames made of etched brass are beyond brilliance. It not only makes a stylish ornament, but will make a splendid gift for many. For football-loving men there is also a stylish replica of Arsenal and Craven Cottage – an amazing alternative to the traditional football memorabilia.
