Building Shapes: Orientation

From Linda on 15th January 2008:

Is there a list of all Hazle Ceramics made? Does it give approximate values? I'm getting into this line again... I bought my first pieces at Selfridges when I was visiting London.

Marilyn's 2008 reply was revised in 2012:

PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE IS NO LIST OF VALUES AND WE ARE UNABLE TO OFFER VALUATIONS. Below is a guide to all 92 building shapes to date in the flatback Nation of Shopkeepers range. The term building shape is based on the outline of the model. There is more detail on the Why Shapes? link above.

Building shapes are shown according to year of issue. End dates usually refer to casting which can sometimes continue past an official "retirement" date. Old bisques can also be found and painted much later.

All shapes are shown to scale, which is 30 pixels per inch. Depending on your browser you may be able to view pixel info by right clicking on the photo then clicking on Properties. Actual dimensions are shown with the full size images on A Piece of Britain.

Ambitiously some building variants are also indicated, such as modelled alterations or additions and/or add-ons such as awnings and post boxes. The Building Variations link above gives more details.

Space only allows for some of often many paintings. The photo is usually listed first. Gold links go to photos and articles on this site. Purple links go to photos and features on A Piece of Britain, either on the main site or in the archive. Paintings listed in pink lettering have no link.

LE   = Limited Edition where a shape is numbered
LM   = Limited Mould where a mould variation is numbered
AM   = Altered Mould which is unnumbered or used more than once
LP   = Limited Painting where a painting is numbered
ONP   = Open Numbered Painting eg No 1, No 2 etc with no fixed limit
OE   = Open Edition where a shape (and or painting) is unnumbered

Only LE and LM tags are included on this page but further info on LPs and ONPs is on the links.

PLEASE NOTE: There is no list of values but this link gives some general info: Retired Values
