We love all things Hawksmoor, his churches are national treasures and none more so than the spectacular Christ Church in London's Spitalfields. Standing at 62m this imposing building dominates the local area. With fantastic geometry one can't help but marvel at this wonderful structure - to us it shouts "London".
Christ Church was completed in 1729, it was one of 50 new churches commissioned by Parliament to provide places of worship to rapidly expanding areas of the city. Hawksmoor's budget was £7,000 however the project went wildly over budget and ended up costing £40,000. Despite being well loved the church fell into disrepair and came close to being demolished in the 1950's. Thankfully the "Hawksmoor Committee" formed and save it.
Our model is of the front facade including central spire. It comes complete with a glass dome.
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.

We received the model today and we LOVE it! Gorgeous
I just received it today and my husband loves it. Thank you so much!
Received the Arsenal Highbury Stadium model - absolute beauty, great detail, beautifully finished, excellent quality.
Your Pantheon model arrived yesterday. It exceeds my greatest expectations. I'm delighted with it.
I received the model of Paris St. Germain (Blue River) on time and in good condition.I am very pleased with the product, which is stunning and very detailed. You can see landmarks in detail as the Louvre pyramid, Musee d'orsay, Palais de Luxembourg, the St. Sulpice Church, the Academie Francaise, Odeon Theater and the Samaritaine department store. It gives you almost the feeling like if you are flying in a helicopter above this quartier of Paris.An idea: The city of Prague (with the river, the Charles Bridge and the castle) is also a very beautiful city. Maybe it is an idea to develop a model of Prague?
My experience with Chisel & Mouse was excellent. I found what I wanted really easily on the site, ordering quick and simple too. The delivery was super quick, even to Austria so that was an extra bonus at Christmas time when I was running late! Great thank you.
This is a fantastic model. The service was first class from start to finish. Thank you so much.
Hi ThereI couldn’t be happier with my London Cityscape. It is quite literally breathtaking, it even has my favourite pub, The Bell in Middlesex Street. But this is the amazing thing, the roof is the correct shape, so the detail is amazing. BestSimon
The model is great - it was a gift for my dad, who actually began his career as an apprentice working at Hoover, and worked there for many years. I immediately recognised that the model depicted the canteen block, and I was impressed that you had that level of detail about the building on your website. What I didn't know was that at one stage, the ground floor of building also housesd the training functions - so it was exactly where my dad first worked. He was delighted by it! I was really happy with everything - the model arrived in the expected timescale and the packaging was particularly good and ensured it was well protected. Thanks again!
