North Light Animal Figures
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.
At Jackie's Attic we still have in stock a good range of the newer North Light@ Wade animal figures and we also have a number of the original UK models available. If you can't find what you're looking for, please contact us and we'll try to help.
