David Winter cottage collectibles can range in value from $42,000 for the last remaining copy of a limited edition cottage to $3.25 for a more common cottage, as of 2015. The number produced of a cottage collectible has a lot to do with its value.
David Winter cottages, which were created by artist John Hine in 1980, are one of the three fastest-appreciating, contemporary, limited-edition collectibles in the United States. Because Mr. Hine retires each piece at will, collectors never know which items are likely to be worth more than others. This strategy suggests simply buying each new collection as it is released.
