Mystery Bookend Building

I recently acquired this bookend in the shape of a building with a dome and a long colonnade in front. In the replica, stairs lead up to 14 columns in front with two pediments capping the columns on each end. Square windows above the columns lead to a roof with a dome with lines which could represent either windows or roofing. Made of bronze, this extremely heavy souvenir building measures 8.5 inches long and over 5 inches tall. Does anyone know which building this bookend might be a replica of? It seems too detailed to just be a generic building. Is it from a university campus, an auditorium or some other structure? If you have an idea, let me know via the ‘comments’ link below. Thanks.

Of course, deburring instruments programmed into the sequence will deburr, although usually reaching 90% of the completed requirement at most, leaving some options for ultimate hand finishing. In addition, the usage of} high-pressure coolant with precision CNC machining ensures that chips do not get into the works, even when using a machine with a vertically oriented spindle.
