Famous London CheesmakersPaxton & Whitfield

Located at 93, Jermyn Street, Paxton & Whitfield has been established in St James’s for over 200 years and in their present premises for over 100 years.

This quintessentially English cheesemonger, established in 1797 lays claim to supply the best Stilton in the kingdom. As Winston Churchill onceCheese detail in window famously said: “A gentleman only buys his cheese from Paxton & Whitfield”

Paxton and Whitfield were granted their first Royal Warrant by Queen Victoria, several more warrants followed, and today Paxton & Whitfield still supply cheese to our Royal Family.

Take a closer look at the beautifully hand painted window on this ceramic, the cheeses stand on their platters, just ready to be tasted, and the name and details on the fascia and windows are painted in pure gold.

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.

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.

Currently we have limited stock of The Windsor Guildhall.   If you would like to check availability, please email us.  info@hazle.com


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 stabilised.  If you visit 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

The King’s English is currently out of stock.  But we sometimes have the odd piece in the workshop, so if you are interested, why not email us to check availability.  info@hazle.com


Our ceramics are hand painted with care, individual artisits work can vary, and a photo of one ceramic will not depict exactly every ceramic painted. Our ceramics are hand made and individually finished. This means the measurements can very slightly from one to another, but only by a milimetre or two.
