Among the most popular pieces of Wade Ireland collected are their tankards and steins, but I love the small items like the bud vases, sugar bowl, mugs, urns etc. I also love the Wade Ireland pieces for their beautiful glazes with earthy mottled caramel/brown and blue/grey/green tones. No two pieces are exactly the same due to variations in the glazes and firings.
The first set of images are all from my cupboards of Irish Wade Porcelain:
Wade Ireland Sugar Bowl - My oldest piece c 1960
Great little salt and pepper shakers
Nice little salt bowl
The painting on this coffee mug is just exquisite
Another great bud vase
One of the tall "Steins"
I presume this 3 legged piece is a Witches Cauldron
A lovely shaped Urn Vase
One of the most common Irish Backstamps from Wade
Wade England began as far back as 1810 as a producer of parts for the spinning and weaving industry. The second era began with Sir George Wade (1891-1986) who changed the company into modern producer of industrial, electrical and decorative ceramics.He was also the inventor of the widely collected Wade “Whimsey”. The wade Whimsey is a small, sold press moulded animal – easily produced and relatively inexpensive - and still made and hugely popular today.
Wade England pottery is often just stamped “Made in England” or Wade, Made in England. The two images below are both Wade, Made in England...both very cute. The first (two fishes) I use as soy sauce dishes for Sushi, and the Cairn Whimsey I bought because I have Cairn Terriers!
