The Whitechapel Gallery in London's East End was founded in 1901. Designed by Charles Harrison Townsend, the gallery has always been central to Cool Britannia.

The Whitechapel Gallery has showcased some legendary artists such as Pablo Picasso, Frida Kahlo, Jackson Pollock, Gilbert & George and Lucian Freud.

Charles Harrison Townsend had a limited budget to work with. He focused much of his attention on the front of the gallery, designing a beautifully detailed arched entrance. Our architectural sculpture is of this gorgeous arched doorway.

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

Address: Whitechapel Gallery, 77-82 Whitechapel High Street, London, E1 7QX, England.

TRELLICK TOWER (L)

11in high, 6.5in wide, 2.5in deep & 5.5lb approximately.

Erno Goldfinger's Trellick Tower is a Grade II listed 31-storey block of flats in North Kensington. The tower is built in a narrow oblong with a separate lift tower linked at every third storey to the main block. Its Brutalist design was not to everyone's taste and was unpopular with many of its council tenants. However over the years the building has become highly desirable and home to up-and-coming designers and entrepreneurs. The building is striking and now has a place in architectural history as London's most iconic tower block.

LESCAZE HOUSE
LESCAZE HOUSE

11in high, 4in wide, 3in deep & 4.6lb approximately.

In 1933-34 William Lescaze, the revered modernist architect, designed and built his own house in Manhattan. Claimed to be New York's first modernist house, it stands out from its row of Brownstones due to its striking design. White concrete, glass bricks, an absence of ornamentation and its use of strong geometric forms make this house unique.

Lescaze approach to architecture can be seen in every facet of the building. From the external design to the internal layout, his focus on function and practical living are evident.

Chisel & Mouse have produced a stunning sculpture of the front facade, paying a fitting homage to one of New York's most desirable residences.

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.

LONDON CITYSCAPE (S)

13in high, 13in wide, 2in deep & 7lb approximately.

London is one of the world's oldest great cities. It grew from three centres: the Roman settlement in the 1st century on the northern banks of the Thames, now known as "the City"; Southwark on the southern banks; and Westminster upstream. London expanded rapidly. The Great Fire of 1666 led to the proposal of many radical rebuilding schemes but these came to little. Instead London was rebuilt piecemeal driven by capitalism and housing demands. London's population passed one million by 1800 and had reached 6.5 million a century later. Its structure is immensely complicated and there is little discernible form. Unsurprisingly it is not characterised by any particular architectural style with its buildings having been amassed over such a long period of time.

This 3d map of London, at a scale of 1:5000, is of "the City" - London's hub of trade, commerce, and banking. It is a single resin tile measuring 30x30cm encapsulated in an oak frame. The model can wall hang or be displayed on a desk or table top.
