We love all things Hawksmoor, his churches are national treasures and none more so than the spectacular Christ Church in London's Spitalfields. Standing at 62m this imposing building dominates the local area. With fantastic geometry one can't help but marvel at this wonderful structure - to us it shouts "London".

Christ Church was completed in 1729, it was one of 50 new churches commissioned by Parliament to provide places of worship to rapidly expanding areas of the city. Hawksmoor's budget was £7,000 however the project went wildly over budget and ended up costing £40,000. Despite being well loved the church fell into disrepair and came close to being demolished in the 1950's. Thankfully the "Hawksmoor Committee" formed and save it.

Our model is of the front facade including central spire. It comes complete with a glass dome.

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.

Battersea Power Station was a gift from my wife, I grew up in the shadow of this building, this piece means so much to me and my family and is an instant heirloom to be passed on.

Just a quick email to say I received the Cityscape today- WOW it’s brilliant, heavy as well. Got to say it’s a brilliant piece of work, very detailed, and up to date, and an ideal gift for a person that lives in central London as a gift. Glad I found your site and placed an order.

I am amazed by the craftsmanship and detail put into the U.S. Capitol dome model. I absolutely love it!! The customer service from Gavin and all at Chisel and Mouse are best. They went above and beyond in every way. I will treasure this for the rest of my life.
