Introduction
Issued in 1993, this second version of the Cambridge model was mainly portrayed as The Old Bookshop and The Gift Shop. For Christmas 1993 and 1994 only, Hazle painted a few as The Gift Box. Almost all the shop fronts for these were a yellowy cream shade.

Hazle Ceramics
The Gift Box
on Cambridge Trinity 2
Hazle painted a few with this title and these windows, only for Christmas 1993 and 1994
RARE: believed to be the only ceramic with a green frontage

 30 Trinity Street, Cambridge. This listed Georgian building has a Gothic Revival frontage from c1740. Hazle’s first model in 1991 had the left door too. Prone to cracking in the kiln due to its width, Hazle redesigned it in 1993. Heffers’ Children’s Bookshop, the occupier in 1991, is now at No 20.

 From 1876 Heffers, now owned by Blackwells, has sold books, art, music and even board games in Cambridge. Everything, including Heffers’ Sound with the wooden front right, is now in one huge space at 20 Trinity Street above.
