Introduction
Hazle introduced this model during 1990, her first year in the business. Real florist “Talking Flowers” was the starting point, with features from nearby buildings like other early models. Vintage florists have a two-tone trim as shown, rather than a single colour. The ceramic floral displays were often simplified on later pieces.

Hazle Ceramics
Blue Florist
on Maldon

One rare vintage piece with a two-tone royal blue trim. The Hazle Boyles signature was only from 1990-1992.

 In an Edwardian building, this florist has the upper bay window and rounded shop front on the model. Images far left show a pitch roof with dormer window and a bay window Hazle used. The latter’s tiny glazing bars are altered on the model.

 The florist on which Hazle based her model is near the top of Maldon High Street, as seen here. These charming period buildings are just beyond.

Maldon
This ancient port and market town on the Essex coast is where the nostalgic Thames sailing barges are moored, as day or charter craft plus education. It is also famous for Maldon Sea Salt since 1882. Shops and cafes are small and traditional - with unusual ones too. All Saints’ Parish Church has a window for the founding father and first US President George Washington, whose ancestor Lawrence is buried outside.

 The Quay with St Mary the Virgin Church. Far right, Thames sailing barges once took hay and straw to London for thousands of horses used in transport.
