As diverse as the rosy-cheeked Hobbits themselves, every smial, as Hobbit-holes are known, reflects the unique personality of its inhabitant and nestles into the hillside amid a sea of lush greenery.
Just where you enter Hobbiton from the south, the road bends and enters a cutting through the grassy hills surrounding the village.
It's known locally as Gandalf's Cutting after the Grey Wizard who often enters from that direction. Just there, on the left is a smial with a blue door adorned with a beautiful leadlight porthole and a small halfmoon window, often dressed with drapes to match.
Each an individual dwelling, the Hobbit holes lend themselves splendidly to creative placement in your cabinet. With a flat back and shallow depth of only 55mm, they can be placed on mantles, cornices, shelves and in windows.
This gorgeous little environment is an exacting miniature replica of the movie set that can be visited at Hobbiton in Matamata, New Zealand. It was designed by the same artists and craftspeople who worked on the movie.
26 Gandalf's Cutting is an Open Edition piece.
