Hares are synonymous with the British countryside. You know spring has arrived when you catch a glimpse of their boxing antics. As these mammals decline in numbers they are being honoured by designers making home accessories, decorative objects, wall art and tableware. You’ll find them cast as animal ornaments and adorning everything from prints, cushions, plates and jugs. I’ve found some handsome hare home accessories for you to admire.
