Issued in 2001 the model is from Hay-on-Wye, a small Welsh town with 39 used book shops and a Literary Festival that Hazle attends. A population of 1500 swells by 100,000 for the annual 10 day event!
As sugar and dried fruits became widespread in the mid 1700s so did pastry shops. Chef Antonin Carême brought a French influence in the early 1800s, as reflected in this patisserie. Painter Sharon Stroud retired with only 14 pieces out of the 50 painted.
