Discontinued Collectibles Guide

Wade Pottery, Whimsies & Other Collectibles

Way back in 1810 Wade Cermaics Ltd first started producing pots and over the following 200 years their range of ceramics has been tremendous, although they have never ventured into the mass produced tableware lines like many of their Stoke on Trent based competitors chose to.

They are perhaps most famous for the Wade Whimsie, a collection of ceramic animals invented by Sir George Wade (1891 - 1986) and which were very popular in the 70s and 80s amongst children. They also created the very collectable Natwest Piggy Bank collection.

On each of the pages within this section dedicated to Wade collectibles we have included links to live and current online auctions dealing in each theme. In addition, where known, we have added details of collector clubs, forums and websites. We wish you every success in tracking down the missing pieces of your discontinued Wade collection and hope you will become a regular visitor to Accumulations. Remember it’s an ever-changing scene so it is always worth a return visit!
