Read an Excerpt
By the early 1950's, the Wade Potteries had filled the demand to replace industrial ceramics damaged in the war, and their was not sufficient work to keep the employees busy. This was when Sir George Wade decided to produce his now worldfamous miniature animals the First Whimsies which he referred to as his pocket money toys. They first appeared in spring 1954 at the British Industries Fair. The miniatures were intended for school children, but they soon attracted the attention of adults and became very collectable.
