Introduction
Like several early models this has features from several buildings. The three properties Hazle used are close to each other in Colchester. Issued in 1991, the second year of Hazle Ceramics, she set out to create a pretty piece. Very few other themes were painted on this model.

on Colchester Dutch Quarter

 This first floor bay window is similar to the ceramic’s. So is the Venetian window above it, popular in Georgian times from 1714-1820. In West Stockwell Street, this Georgian house is within the Dutch Quarter.

Rarer mauve Easter version
The rear sticker describes a “curious combination of styles”. The sweeping steps, flower beds and tubs plus the trailing wisteria all add to the charm and appeal

 Maidenburgh Street in the old Dutch Quarter, where Flemish weavers once lived. The model’s ground floor jettied windows are similar to the 1500s green cottage.

 Chocolate is an apt theme for something that has a “chocolate box” facade. Often a part of courtship, its feelgood effect is due to the raised serotonin!

 Treetops in the cottages photo are from Castle Park which has a boating lake.
Attic windows are based on the second floor at 59 High Street near the Castle. 
