Floris, London, Perfume makers to royaltyFloris

Floris, the Perfumers, have been operating at 89 Jermyn Street since 1730. A delightful building & one of the many in Jermyn St. that Hazle would like to model. Note the gold & copper highlights. The interior contains some magnificent Spanish Mahogany Showcases from the Great Exhibition of 1851.

One of the quirkier things that happened in the shop was the “laundering” of money. Because ladies of the period often wore long elegant gloves & money was quite dirty, Floris used to take the money they received from customers & wash & iron it. Change would be given to the customers on a velvet tray, still used today!! With service like this no wonder they hold Royal Warrants!! The building is directly opposite Princes Arcade, where you will find John English Gifts, one of our premier stockists & the shop where you can purchase this piece (as well as off the website) It is one of the smallest Limited Editions we have ever produced and is companion to Paxton & Whitfield, 2 doors away.

Floris is a numbered edition of just 500 pieces, and measures 23cm (9″) tall to the top of the chimney x 10.5cm (4 & 1/4″) wide.

Mrs Hudson downstairs, Sherlock upstairsSherlock Holmes House

221b’ Baker Street ‘home’ of the celebratedFirst Floor Drawing Room (fictitious -honestly!) criminal investigator, Sherlock Holmes and trusty colleague Dr. Watson. The ceramic is painted with Holmes playing the violin in the left hand upstairs window and his ‘hubble-bubble’ pipe in the right window. Mrs. Hudson’s (housekeeper) drawing room is on the ground floor. There are railings of cast metal and a metal lamp post. This is the first ceramic we have added metalwork to.

The building itself does exist – in Baker St. London and would probably have been a boarding house at the time Conan Doyle was creating Holmes – but it was not Number 221b. At present it is 221b and houses a ‘Museum’ dedicated to Sherlock Holmes ‘memorabilia’- in fact you would swear he lived there…

The Sherlock Holmes House measures 23.4cm (9 & 1/4″) tall to the top of the chimney x 9cm ( 3 & 1/2″) wide.

The building was opened as a Museum in 1925 and today welcomes a steady stream of visitors from all over the world.

The Chantry

Located in the High Street, Billiericay, Essex. The Chantry House was built around 1510 on the site of an earlier building erected to house the priest who served the Chantry Chapel (now St Mary Magdelen) in the 1340’s

Ship’s governor Christopher Martin, a vitualler of ships, owned the Chantry building and lived there until he sailed on the Mayflower with the Pilgrim Fathers to New England. As vitualler, he also supplied the food for the voyage. Sadly, he perished along with his wife Marie, Solomon Prower, and John Langemore shortly after their arrival at Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

The building has had many uses and changes of ownership over the years, and is currently a restaurant. On the front of our ceramic version, you will see the date of building, 1510. Drive past the real Chantry in Billericay, and you will see a different date… Local historians advise the date we use is the correct one.

The Chantry measures 16.9cm(6 & 3/4″) tall to the top of the chimney x 12.4cm (4 & 7/8″) wide.

Windsor guildhal websizelThe Windsor Guildhall.

This elegant building is one of the most interesting that we have created!  It was built between 1687 and 1689, by Sir Christopher Wren, who lived in Windsor as a child.   The drinking fountain in front of the building was erected to mark Her Majesty’s Silver Jubilee in 1977.

Another Queen’s Jubilee is commemorated close by, the statue of Queen Victoria was erected in 1887, to mark the 50th year of her reign. The Guildhall is a well known wedding venue, Prince Charles & Camilla Parker Bowles were married here in April 2005, and Sir Elton John tied the knot with David Furnish at the Guildhall in one of the very first civil partnership ceremonies.

A limited painting of just 60 ceramics, each with it’s own informative certificate.

The Windsor Guildhall measures 21cm tall x 12cm wide.

Picture1The Kings English Shop

This historic building constructed in 1647 and located in the heart of Canterbury, was once the School Shop for the Kings School, Canterbury.  It has leaned to the right since the 1800′s and it was not until 1980 that the building was stabilished.  If you vist Canterbury, do try to get inside – the floors and stairs match the leaning exterior perfectly, making walking from one side of the upper floor to the other a very unique experience!

Here we show it not as a School Uniform Suppliers, but as a book shop!  In it’s long history this building has been home to many businesses, including a book seller.

A limited painting of just 200 ceramics
