Glasgow School of Art's Mackintosh Building, "The Mac" or "Toshie" as it is commonly known, was voted Britain's favourite building of the last 175 years in a 2009 RIBA poll. It has been at the heart of the Glasgow School of Art's campus. Building work was started in 1897 to a design created by the school's most famous alumnus, Charles Rennie Mackintosh. He was a leading proponent of the Arts and Crafts and Art Nouveau movements in the United Kingdom. The Mackintosh Building is his masterwork. Unfortunately it was consumed by fire recently and its future is uncertain.
Our architectural sculpture is of the slightly off-centre entrance facade. The facade is asymmetric with tower like masonry walls and small windows remembering Scottish baronial architecture.
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, shelf or wall.
Address: Glasgow School of Art, 167 Renfrew Street, Glasgow, G3 6RQ, Scotland.

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.

My husband is absolutely over the moon with his cityscape. He loves it! He was pretty much speechless and overcome. He has taken a good look at your site and watched the videos etc. and is totally intoxicated.
