Farringdon Station Architectural Sculpture by Chisel and Mouse
A PLASTER MODEL OF THIS GLORIOUS NEO-CLASSICAL BUILDING. MEASURING 9.5CM HIGH, 29CM WIDE, 6CM DEEP & 2.2KG APPROXIMATELY.
Charles W. Clark's design for Farringdon Station is striking, long and sleek. The building is instantly recognisable. Clark was central to the design of much of London Underground's architecture.
Farringdon is currently undergoing major re-sculpting as the station is set to become the main interchange between the new Crossrail and Thameslink projects in 2018.
Whether the new development puts pay to the rumours of ghosts and haunting remains to be seen. It is said that the screams of Anne Naylor, murdered in 1758 can still be heard as the last train leaves the station at night!
Chisel & Mouse have created a sculpture of the main facade of this beautiful building, another quintessential London tube station. Each sculpture is individually hand crafted in our studio in Sussex, England. They are made of strong plaster that has a reassuring weight and smooth, cool feel. The window frame and railings are made of etched brass. Stylish ornaments, gifts or presents that are handmade in Britain and look fabulous on a desk, shelf or wall.
