David Winter cottages are a collector’s item. The collectibles have existed since 1979 and are sold through a variety of distributors at different prices.
The cottages are sculpted to the finest detail and are more appealing since the designs are hand-crafted. The sculptor uses pale yellow wax, which is ideal for the job since it is easier to work especially in highlighting the finer details.
To add to the allure of the cottage, his cottages have a hidden mouse or owl, which you should discover. This is a good way to enchant your visitors to find the mysterious mouse or owl. Visit the www.davidwintercottages.co.uk for more information on the history and photos of his famous pieces.

After purchasing any of the David Winter Cottages, you will need to take great care of it, to not only keep it from damage but also retain its worth since they are rare items. Use a dry cloth to dust it and soft brushes such as a toothbrush to remove dust that may be in spaces where the cloth may not reach. You should also keep it from water since the wax may disintegrate or direct sunlight. Should it break, seek a professional to repair it for you to avoid worsening the crack.
