Throughout history architects have built scale model replicas of their designs to show their clients in order for them to gain a perspective regarding both the size and look of the architect’s vision. This practice can be followed as far back as the 1500’s when Michelangelo redesigned St. Peter’s dome for the Vatican. Multiple models were found in an attic and restored and are now part of the Vatican museum. Just like the earlier design replicas belonging to and made by architects, this antique model of lighthouse steps would make a perfect unique office gift or nautical décor piece for any home. This product is finished with beautiful cherry and birch wood and contains various tones of light and dark honey.
