The old Greyhound Terminal was built as a terminal for Greyhound Bus Lines. Greyhound cleverly adopted the beautiful art deco, streamlined shapes of the 1930's to suggest speed, style and forward thinking. The building was designed by William S Arrasmith and completed in 1940. It remained a bus terminal until sold in 1985. A spirited and successful campaign was mounted to save the Greyhound Terminal and developers were persuaded to keep the building as an entrance to an office block built behind it. Our architectural sculpture is of the facade of this stunning example of streamline moderne.
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 nickel silver. Stylish ornaments, gifts or presents that are handmade in Britain and look fabulous on a desk, shelf or wall.
Address: 1100 New York Avenue, Washington, DC 20005, United States.

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.
