New York is the most populous city in the United States. It exerts a significant global influence upon commerce, finance, media, art, fashion, research, technology, education, and entertainment. The history of New York begins around 10,000 BC, when the first Native Americans arrived. By 1100 AD, New York's main native cultures, the Iroquoian and Algonquian, had developed. European discovery of New York was led by the French in 1524 and the first land claim came in 1609 by the Dutch. The streets of lower Manhattan developed organically as the colony of New Amsterdam. It was renamed New York when the British took it over from the Dutch in 1664. The roads were a mixture of country lanes, short streets and Native American and animal trails without any overarching order until around 1800 when the Common Council of New York began to assert authority. The Commissioners' Plan of 1811 was the original design for the streets of Manhattan above Houston Street, which put in place the rectangular grid plan of streets and lots that has defined Manhattan to this day. It has been called "the single most important document in New York City's development," and the plan has been described as encompassing the "republican predilection for control and balance ... [and] distrust of nature." The Plan is arguably the most famous use of the grid plan or "gridiron" and is considered by many historians to have been far-reaching and visionary.

The building form most closely associated with New York City is the skyscraper, which has shifted many commercial and residential districts from low-rise to high-rise. Surrounded mostly by water, the city has amassed one of the largest and most varied collection of skyscrapers in the world. The art deco Chrysler building is considered by many historians and architects to be one of New York's finest. The character of New York's large residential districts is often defined by the elegant brownstone rowhouses, townhouses, and shabby tenements that were built during a period of rapid expansion from 1870 to 1930.

This 3d map of New York, at a scale of 1:5000, is of the southern tip of Manhattan. 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.

FREEMASONS' HALL
ARSENAL STADIUM (L)
ARSENAL STADIUM (L)

10in high, 7in wide, 2.5in deep & 4.8lb approximately.

The art deco facade of Arsenal Stadium, or "Highbury" as it is commonly known, is unique amongst football stadiums and is unmistakably Arsenal. To capture this classic design, Chisel & Mouse have created an architectural sculpture of the amazing "East Stand".

Arsenal Stadium was built in 1913. In the 1930's the site was redeveloped and the outstanding Art Deco East and West stands produced. Architects Claude Waterlow Ferrier and William Binnie were responsible for these splendid designs.

Arsenal FC have recently moved to their new Emirates stadium and the old Arsenal Stadium has been redeveloped as residential flats with parts of the East and West Stands retained.

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.

HOOVER BUILDING

7in high, 8.5in wide, 2in deep & 4.6lb approximately.

The Hoover Buildings have long been heralded as a monument to the art deco movement. The Hoover Buildings, designed by Wallis, Gilbert and Partners, are magnificent and a real advertisment for the Hoover company. The beautiful facades were a revolution in the 1930's and the use of colour was especially bold with the light green window frames making the buildings unmistakable.

Chisel & Mouse have produced an architectural sculpture of "Building No.7". It was the last to be constructed and operated as the staff canteen and recreation centre.

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 are made of etched brass. Stylish ornaments, gifts or presents that look fabulous on a desk, shelf or wall.

BUCKINGHAM PALACE
BUCKINGHAM PALACE

10in high, 7in wide, 2in deep & 4.5lb approximately.

Buckingham Palace, in London, is the official residence of the British monarch. On many occasions it has been a focal point for the British people at times of national rejoicing and crisis. The original Buckingham House forms the core of today's palace and was built for the Duke of Buckingham in 1705. It passed into Royal ownership in the 18th century and became the official residence of the British monarch in 1837.

Buckingham Palace has undergone major structural changes with the East Front being added in the early 19th century. Our architectural sculpture is of the central portion of the East Front and contains the balcony from which the Royal Family acknowledges the crowds on momentous occasions and annually after Trooping the Colour.

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 are made of etched brass. Stylish ornaments, gifts or presents that are handmade in Britain and look fabulous on a desk, shelf or wall.
