Amsterdam has its origins in the 12th century when locals built a dam over the river Amstel leading to the village being named "Aemstelredamme". In the Middle Ages, Amsterdam was surrounded by a moat, called the Singel, which now forms the innermost ring in the city, and makes the city centre a horseshoe shape. The canal system was heavily developed in the early 17th century, considered the city's Golden Age, to accommodate large scale immigration. Four concentric half-circles of canals with their ends emerging at the IJ bay were constructed. Amsterdam is now home to more than one hundred kilometres of canals. It is thought that the considerations of the layout were purely practical and defensive rather than ornamental. The layout of the inner city canal ring was inscribed on the World Heritage List by Unesco in 2010.

This 3d map of Amsterdam, at a scale of 1:5000, is centred on the Royal Palace and includes the Singel, Prinsengracht, Herengracht and Keizersgracht. It is a single plaster tile measuring 30x30cm encapsulated in a perspex frame. The model can wall hang or be displayed on a desk or table top.

FREEMASONS' HALL

9.5in high, 6.5in wide, 3in deep & 7lb approximately.

Architects Henry Victor Ashley and F.Winton Newman designed Freemasons' Hall and construction took place between 1927 and 1933.

The current Grade II art deco building is the third masonic hall on this two-and-a-quarter acre site in the heart of London. It cost over £1 million to build, the money having been raised by Freemasons to honour the 3225 Freemasons who died in WWI.

Chisel & Mouse have created a beautiful architectural sculpture of the Freemasons' Hall main entrance.

Each of our architectural sculptures is handmade in our studio in Sussex, England. They are made of strong plaster that has a reassuring weight and smooth, cool feel. The window frame and door are made of etched brass. Stylish ornaments, gifts or presents that are handmade in Britain and look fabulous on a desk, shelf or wall.

Address: Freemasons' Hall, 60 Great Queen Street, London, WC2B 5AZ, England.

BATTERSEA POWER STATION
BATTERSEA POWER STATION

11in high, 8in wide, 2in deep & 3.3lb approximately.

Battersea Power Station, built in 1933, had been crumbling away since shutting down over 20 years ago, but is now once more resplendent after restoration. This building, with its instantly recognisable chimneys, is a true London landmark and worthy of the term 'iconic'.

Our architectural sculpture of Battersea Power Station's Northern Chimneys is striking. It displays the beauty and function that Sir Giles Gilbert Scott was so famous for and is the perfect example of mantelpiece art.

Each of our architectural sculptures is handmade in our studio in Sussex, England. They are made of strong plaster that has a reassuring weight and smooth, cool feel. Stylish ornaments, gifts or presents that are handmade in Britain and look fabulous on a desk, shelf or wall.

FLATIRON BUILDING (M)
FLATIRON BUILDING (M)

8in high, 5in wide, 2.5in deep & 3lb approximately.

The Flatiron was designed by Daniel Burnham, a founder of the 'Chicago School' style of architecture. Completed in 1902 the building was built using a unique steel skeleton which became the prototype for many skyscrapers that followed.

The building was not initially greeted with public acclaim, but soon became a symbol of New York and is considered the nation's first true skyscraper. Its distinctive clothes 'iron' shape gives the building its name. Built at the intersection of Broadway and Fifth Avenue, the 'Architectural Record' suggested the building "resembled a ship sailing up the Avenue."

The Flatiron has become one of New York's must see tourist attractions - a true city icon. Chisel & Mouse have modelled the building in its entirety, enabling you to view the sculpture from each of its unique angles.

Each of our architectural sculptures is handmade in our studio in Sussex, England. They are made of strong plaster that has a reassuring weight and smooth, cool feel. The window frames and door are made of etched brass. Stylish ornaments, gifts or presents that are handmade in Britain and look fabulous on a desk or shelf.

The Flatiron Building, 175 Fifth Avenue at East 23rd Street, New York City, USA.
