From the website:

"Created by some of the same artists and craftsmen who work on our movies, like Daniel Falconer, David Tremont, Daniel Cockersell and several others. It's a real team effort to produce a piece like this.

The special Collector's Edition features the interiors of the rooms of Bag End on the back of the piece, based on the original plans and drawings used in Peter Jackson's trilogy. The front door is also ajar to show the paved floor of the entrance hall of Bilbo's abode.

"It has had the nod of approval by Dan Hennah, John Howe and Alan Lee who were jointly responsible for the Bag End set (picture below).

"Bag End - Collector's Edition is limited to 1,111 world wide."

There's also a series of articles that have been published over the past few months charting the development of the miniature and its creation. (http://www.wetanz.com/bag-end-update-by-daniel-falconer/)
