Description

The heart of England series sets out to capture the feeling of a typical English village. They are not based on any particular existing village.

The Shirehall or Country hall house, is the building where the offices of the clerk of the county is located.

David Winter is English born artist and sculptor to a colonel father and sculptor mother. From the young age he was interested in art. He started collaborating with John Hine. The idea for cottages came about after a visit John had made to a shop in St Catherine’s Dock, London.

Fun fact:

The first time that the mouse appeared was on "Brookside Hamlet". The story goes that in 1982 David was sculpting away, adding the finishing touches to this piece while another artist, who was working for John Hine Limited at the time, had just completed a model of a mouse sitting on a piece of cheese. David Winter commented that he thought it looked more like a rat and sculpted a small mouse on the side of "Brookside Hamlet" to make his point. He then proceeded to add the mouse onto many of his sculptures thereafter and so the mouse was born.

Then at the end of 1991 it was suddenly realized that the mouse had disappeared. and that an owl had taken its place. However, when collectors discovered what had happened to the mouse they petitioned John Hine Studios for its return. Realizing the mouse's popularity the mouse returned two years later and he can be seen again on the 1993 Collectors Guild plaque "On the Riverbank" with the owl flying away.

I couldn't find the mouse in this model.
