The Glasgow School of Art is a very well known building by architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Mackintosh is perhaps the most well known architect of the Arts and Crafts movement and the Glasgow School of Art is one of his best known works - it is often considered a masterpiece.
The model of the building, created by the British firm Chisel & Mouse, is made from high-strength plaster and is hand-made in Great Britain. The facade of the building has amazing detail - the carving above the entry door is very clean, especially for cast plaster. The windows and the door are created from a dark brass. The text of the building's name is in a font that comes straight from Art Nouveau. However, for all of the detail, this model is not exactly delicate. It is quite large (around 11 inches tall) and weighs in at about 7 pounds.
We think this model would be a great addition to an empty shelf or mantle. It would also look great on a side table.
