Greyhound Terminal model in plaster by Chisel & Mouse
Condition: this model was displayed at CaixaForum Madrid and CaixaForum Barcelona, and was returned in its current status. Several brass frames are dented inwards, and some of these original frames are missing (See pictures). Bends could be fixed with care as the thin brass pieces are soft and malleable.
The old Greyhound Terminal was built as a terminal for Greyhound Bus Lines.
Greyhound cleverly adopted the beautiful Art Deco, streamlined shapes of the 1930s to suggest speed, style, and forward thinking.
The building was designed by William S. Arrasmith and completed in 1940.
Made of strong plaster that has a reassuring weight and smooth and cool feel. Window frame and railings are made of etched brass.
Handmade in Sussex, England.
