Greyhound Terminal model
Estimated date of return:
This building was originally built as a terminal for bus lines. Greyhound cleverly adopted the beautiful Art Deco design, streamlining shapes of the 1930s to suggest speed, style, and forward-thinking.
The building was designed by William S. Arrasmith and completed in 1940, where it remained a bus terminal until it was 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 behind it. 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.
