Flatiron Building model
Estimated date of return:
The Flatiron was designed by Daniel Burnham, a founder of the 'Chicago School' style of architecture. Completed in 1902, the building was built using a unique steel skeleton, which became the prototype for many skyscrapers that followed.
The building was not greeted with public acclaim initially, but soon became a symbol of New York and is considered the nation’s first true skyscraper. Each sculpture is individually handmade in Sussex, England, at the Chisel & Mouse workshop.
They are made of a strong plaster that provides reassuring weight and a smooth, cool feel. Window sills and frames are made of engraved brass. These decorative objects make ideal gifts and breathe new life into any ordinary desk, shelf, or wall.
