  The Dorchester, Park Lane, London is one of the world's greatest and luxurious hotels. Built on the site of the old American Embassy in 1931 this model celebrates the front foyer from the inside, a view familiar to all who stay there. The brass and glass Deco clock shows the time of 12.03. This differentiates it from the first edition, commissioned by the Hotel for the millennium 2000 celebrations, where the clock set at midnight. Other details on the model include door cases lined in patinated copper, the doors themselves being made of lead with gold plated kick plates and cigarette butt box.
