National Trust Bronze Frith Sculpture, Heelis Hare


The Story
Reviews (27)

Exclusive to the National Trust, Heelis Hare is hand made in the UK.

Originally sculpted by Thomas Meadows at his Wiltshire studio and recreated by Frith in their special bronze finish.

This bronze resin sculpture has exquisite detail and undoubtedly captures the essence of the hare.

Heelis is named after one of the Trust’s biggest benefactors, Mrs William Heelis, otherwise known as Beatrix Potter, the author of the much loved children’s books.

This hare is hand made in the UK and will make a fine statement piece for the home and would also make an exceptional gift.

Our bronze family also includes Honey Hare and Howard Hare.

For over twenty years Frith Sculpture have supplied the National Trust with a range of animal and figurative sculptures .

The sculptures are first sculpted in clay or wax by freelance sculptors before being taken to a studio on Exmoor.

The manufacturing process is entirely done by hand using materials of the highest quality.

The sculptures in a special bronze finish may be positioned in the home or in the garden in all weathers.

Dimensions: 390 x 200 x 160mm

Material: Cold cast bronze, bronze powder and resin

Wash Care: Only dusting needed, if necessary wash with warm water – do NOT use a proprietary cleaner.


UK Delivery: 3 - 5 working days from £4.95

International Delivery: 7 - 10 working days from £15

Xmas present which had a wow factor. 100% delighted with the product, well packaged and delivery time was as promised.

We are returning this sculpture as were dissatisfied with the general finish. We bought the item as a present for our daughter who also owns another Frith sculptor, Howard Hare. When placing the two items together the differences are quite marketed, the Heelis Hare is rough in texture and lacks the lustre of Howard Hare, there is also a variation in colour. It's a shame really as we have bought two Honey Lying Hares and they do compliment Howard Hare.

5 stars Bronze Rabbit Sculpture. Written by

This was great value for money, considering the fact that it's four times the size of some of the other rabbit sculptures sold here! Recommended.

5 stars Gorgeous Heelis Hare Written by

Very pleased with this lovely statue. It's a lovely colour and a beautiful pose! Also very pleased to get it in the sale!

5 stars Ridiculous waste of packaging when delivered.... Written by

Lovely item, my mum was very pleased but this hare was packaged in a box about 5 times the size of the hare. Ridiculous amount of packaging that all went to waste. I cannot believe that they can't figure out a way to use less packaging to send this item out without damage.

5 stars Wonderful piece Written by

The character of the Hare has been captured. Very good quality and finish. We love it. Great value.

Purchased Heelis from one of the N.T. shops, during an impromptu visit. Extremely pleased with him, so life like looks great on our mantle piece and a real talking point for all our family and friends when they visit.

Disappointed that the first sculpture received was faulty. This was immediately sorted out by the National Trust, with no hassle and a replacement received within three days.. The sculpture is full of character and we love it.

2 stars Slightly disappointing Written by

I had been bought Howard Hare as a present and thought Heelis would be a good companion. In fact the finish is very different and the opinion of my partner was that Heelis looked "like a monster". Put separately it doesn't look quite so bad but on the whole looks rather unnatural . If I had had a good look at it "in the flesh" I am not sure I would have purchased it.

Very pleased with the purchase, quick delivery.

5 stars Heelis hare is part of the family Written by

Heelis hare is an excellent design. The sculptor has captured a moment that you can't help reacting to. The hare brightens up the room and looks great surrounded by plants. It is heavy as the bronze is an applied resin but this gives it an added sense of permanence. The whole family love it.

I bought this hare for my husbands eightieth birthday present and he was thrilled to bits. It really is a very fine sculpture I would recommend very highly.

5 stars heelis is welcome Written by

Brought Heelis as had purchased Sidney Dog and was most pleased with bronze figure .They both are well designed. Delivery was very prompt, well done team. Heelis is such a well designed hare, he captures your eyes as soon as you walk in the lounge, which is what happened in our Kingston Lacy shop but needed to order Heelis online as only had funds for Sidney at the time.

5 stars You'll love Heelis Written by

One of the large cast resin figures available and a very good price. Well packaged, arrived quickly and he is fabulous. Wish we could afford a whole husk of them!

5 stars 'Harry' Heelis hare Written by

Everyone visiting our home has commented on how lovely the hare is, we are very pleased with him ourselves - a great buy.

5 stars Mrs Written by

A truly magnificent animal, bought as a fiftieth birthday present. Love how the hare is looking up to the sky above.

5 stars Heelis Hare good quality Written by

Bought for a present, nice quality and packaged extremely well..

5 stars Order With Confidence Written by

I had some concerns ordering this shortly before Christmas for a gift given some previous reviews about damaged deliveries. I was relieved & pleased to have the delivery arrive promptly & in perfect condition, packaging was more than adequate, so feedback has either been taken on board or previous deliveries suffered some brutal treatment!!.. The sculpture is great & doesn't seem to be too fragile & the online saving was a bonus.

5 stars Heelis Hare - the sculpture with attitude! Written by

I was delighted with this Frith Sculpture. It was purchased as a Christmas present for my son and was exactly as I hoped it would be. It is beautifully made and the Hare shows great character. It was very well packed and arrived safely and promptly as promised. I was also delighted at how easy it was to buy online as I am not very comfortable with ordering via computer!

Lovely representation. Arrived in good time, and in good condition

5 stars Heelis hare - quality item which met expectation Written by

This particular item was not available in our nearest NT shop so we purchased on-line. It arrived when expected, extremely well packaged to prevent damage and was just as described and met our expectations entirely. We had previously purchased an otter by the same sculptor/company which we saw in one of your larger shops, and the hare complements it perfectly.

5 stars A Joyous Addition to my Collection Written by

I purchased a Leaping Hare by a different sculpter some years ago. They are both so similar in style you would think they are by the same sculpter. This one is so lifelike and his pose and facial expression bring joy to my heart every time I open the curtains in the morning. He is on the lounge windowsill looking out.

5 stars Irresistible.. Written by

Gorgeous, although a damaged paw meant a re-delivery. A magnificent piece of work!

5 stars Adorable! Written by

For anyone who's a fan of Frith hares, this NT special is an unmissable addition to a collection. He arrived very promptly, beautifully packaged, and I am delighted.

5 stars Just gorgeous! Written by

I love Heelis hare - his eyes seem to twinkle and follow you around the room! Beautiful conception - pure class!
