penhaligons websizePenhaligon’s  Covent Garden
In the late 1860′s, William Henry Penhaligon came to London to establish himself as a barber.  He invented his first fragrance in 1872 and went on to develop a scent for the Duke of Marlborough.  This scent, called ‘Blenheim Bouquet’  was a favourite of Winston Churchill, and it is still produced and popular today.
The original shop was situated in Jermyn Street  This building was destroyed  in The Blitz in 1941 and the new Penhaligon’s shop, on which our ceramics is based, was opened in 1975 in Covent Garden by Sheila Pickles, with the help of the Italian film director Franco Zefferilli. Pickles drew upon the formulas left by William Penhaligon himself, and also introduced a range of traditional floral scents for women.
Below, a row of the famous Penhaligon’s bottles, with their distintive bows,

You can see these in the window of our ceramic version, beautifully painted by Christine.  The writing across the window, and the Penhaligons name are in pure gold.  We will be producing only 30 of this Limited Painting, which is priced at £99.50 +carriage/insurance
Sorry, Penhaligons is now sold out

AMargaret Thatcher birthplacelf Roberts Corner Shop – The Birthplace of Margaret Thatcher

Whatever our individual politics, who could recognise this unique, strong, clever and brave woman who fought her way to the top of world politics in an age when women were simply not accepted in this ‘men’s world’.

She epitomised the heart of ‘Middle England’, a grocer’s daughter, and grammer school girl who was proud of her origins and maintained the principles she learnt as a child all her life.  We pay our own tribute to ‘The Iron Lady’ with our Alf Roberts Corner Shop, Grantham, Lincolnshire.

The young Margaret and her family lived in the flat above this interesting Victorian corner building, where ‘Maggie’ and her elder sister could be found helping out in the store room every Saturday, preparing groceries for sale.

Today the premises is occupied by a Health Centre, but her father’s original shop fascia is still preserved behind the modern day signage, and a plaque shows this to be the birthplace of one of our Nation’s iconic leaders.

The Alf Roberts Building is a Limited Edition of 1000 ceramics, each will come with it’s individually numbered certificate, personally signed by Hazle.

First issued in February 2000, as part of the ‘Hazle 2000’ collection, a Limited edition of a maximum of 2000 ceramics.

It is based on a building in Conduit Street, London and before producing this one, Hazle had to get permission from the Filofax group to use their logo on our building.

The Filofax was the mobile phone of the 1980’s!  No-one was seen without their Filofax, and nothing arranged or agreed without consulting it!  However, the origins of the Filofax go back to the 1920’s.
