PostSubject: Northlight Resin horses   Sat May 29, 2010 9:16 am

Thought I'd share my North Light horses with you.
Here's the history of them:
"North Light sculptures were first produced in 1978 and are renowned worldwide for their high quality and true-to-life detail. They are beautifully crafted in a mixture of ceramic and resin, with the addition of porcelain powder. This combination allows for the very fine detail demonstrated in the figures. Each figure is hand painted and finished in a matt glaze.

The Wade factory was established in 1810 and in 2005, North Light merged with Wade to become North Light @ Wade. Production of the very broad range of animal figures continued in the UK until July 2008, when the decision was taken to cease UK production of the North Light animals. A new range of animal figures was introduced - the North Light @ Wade Premier Collection - consisting of 17 horses and 22 dogs. The new range was made in China to the same exacting standards for which North Light were known, but were available at a considerably lower price. Unfortunately, however, Wade ceased production of all North Light figures in January 2009."

Thanks. Even though the Harness Horse is made in China, it is still a lovely model and is very heavy indeed!

Thanks Amy, they are certainly special models. I love the fact the the new forest pony is hand painted and made making it unique.

Yes, he does look like an Arabian :)
I was sad when the company stopped making them in England. England has stopped making many lovely things now.

I think the biggest loss was Britains, I wish I could go back to when they were new and available in toy/model shops, I'd buy everything!
