(single doorway model

This single doorway model is of the second TSE, built on the site of the original and completed in 1937.

The architects George and Moorehouse designed it with associate S.H. Maw.

The style of the building is a mix of streamlined moderne and Art Deco. The facade is made of limestone and pink granite with a fantastic frieze on the second floor level designed by Charles Comfort. The frieze depicts 33 life size figures each portraying the main Canadian industries.

These images are continued on in the stainless steel medallions carved into the front door. The model is made of plaster, and brass with beautiful piece of rose coloured glass behind the door. This looks stunning placed in front of light.

Weight: 2 kg - Dimensions: 6w x 9.75h x 3d
The entrance to any building immediately sets the scene for what is to be found inside and the doorway models from Timothy Richards of Bath focus on these iconic elements of the building.

They make a striking focus on any mantelpiece, occasional table or bookcase and make a memorable gift for all occasions.
