The distinctive Flatiron Building in New York City was designed by famed Chicago architect Daniel Burnham. At the time of its opening in 1902, it was one of the tallest buildings in the city. The Flatiron maxed out the triangular plot of land that it sits on and got its name because it resembles an old cast-iron clothes iron.
This would be a perfect gift for an architect based in New York and would look great on a mantle or end table. The plaster model is handmade in Great Britain by the firm Chisel & Mouse. It comes in at 11" tall and a hefty 7 1/2 pounds. Each one of their models is hand numbered and signed by the model-maker. By its very nature, a handmade plaster model will be unique - a true work of art.
The model is shipped in a custom black presentation box with a detailed description of the building with information about the architect.
