Overview

Three years in preparation, the authors' fourth book on the World of Wade is now complete. This new full color book by the preeminent experts in the field features Wade ceramic figurines and miniatures from the 1930s through to the present time. With over 2,500 items shown in color and organized in 17 chapters, this comprehensive guide to the popular collectibles has current values both in U.S. dollars and British pounds. Included are many of the highly collectible Wade ladies of the 1930s, nursery rhyme figurines, Irish Wade figurines, and miniature and large animal and bird figurines from the 1930s and 1950s. Also shown are the Whimsey-on-Why village series, early and later Whimsies, Disney miniatures and "Blow-Ups," Christmas party cracker series, and of course the ever popular Canadian and U.S. Red Rose Tea figurines. The highly popular Betty Boop and Arthur Hare figurines are here too. Many special figurines issued by the Official International Wade Collectors Club for its thousands of members throughout the world and many "one-of-a-kind" figurines are shown along with numerous color variations of the miniature premium figurines. One chapter illustrates many figural money banks, figural posy bowls, and specially commissioned pieces by various companies and individuals. Of particular importance to Wade collectors are the notes and illustrations of reissues and reproduction figurines, which always occur when an item becomes so highly collectible and sought after. As with previous books by these authors, there is a complete illustrated list identifying the many Wade backstamps from the late 1800s through to the present. This is a beautiful and valuable book for the thousands ofWade collectors around the world.

    A MUST HAVE FOR THE WADE COLLECTOR!!!!

    Being a Wade collector for nearly 20 years, and a new dealer, the
    "World of Wade" series is a must for any collector..just starting..or a well seasoned! I just can not say enough about this particular book. It segways from the start of the Wade pottery with alot of history, backstamps, and Wade fakes. The wonderful color photographs document Wade from the early 30's up to the most recent commissioned pieces, Wade Irish porcelain from County Armagh, promotional disillery jugs, tableware, Jessie Van Halen figurines to Faust Lang figurines, to the Official International Wade collectors club pieces.
    It is a true testament, once again, that the authors of the "World of Wade" series of books can not, and should not be overlooked by any Wade collector!! Others you might enjoy: World of Wade book I, World of Wade book II; World of Wade Price Trends; World of Wade Ireland; World of Wade Whimsies.
