Limited edition the US Capitol Dome. We are producing a run of 150 beautifully crafted and hand signed models.

The neoclassical US Capitol dome is a symbol of democracy in Washington D.C. It was designed by Thomas U. Walter and constructed between 1855-1866. The dome is made of cast iron (over 4000 tonnes) and painted to appear to be made of the same stone as the main Capitol building. The dome measures 66 metres (217 feet), has 120 windows and 48 columns. It consists of two domes; the outer dome was scaled to the size of the exterior of the building, whereas the smaller interior dome is sized to the rotunda’s proportions.

Our cut-away model perfectly highlights the intricate design and staggering workmanship that went into this magnificent building.

We have created a 3d printed cross section of the world famous dome, mounted it on a beautiful white base and then housed it in a traditional bell jar.

Sustainably Crafted

We all want the world to be a better place. We are trying to do our bit. We reuse, recycle and use less where we can. We search out sustainable local suppliers. We sponsor grassroots sports for the local youth, donating both money and time. We sponsor local environmental projects. We know we can do more but we're making a start!

Handmade

We hand make all of our models. Chisel & Mouse is the combination of an artisan’s approach (the chisel) with modern innovation and transformative technologies (the mouse). By capturing life and its big ideas in miniature, the brand celebrates the beauty of our industrialised world.
