The World Of Wade: Book 2 : Collectable Porcelain And Pottery

A sequel to The World of Wade, this even larger book continues the Wade story. Here Warner and Posgay share more information and beautiful illustrations of figurines, animal figures, cartoon figures (including Disney), premiums, flowers, money banks, souvenirs, whimsies, tankards, flower jugs, vases, teapots, cream and sugar sets, advertising wares, liquor decanters, tableware patterns, and royal commemoratives. In all, more than 1,300 items are pictured in full color, plus hundreds more in black and white. This book adds tremendously to our knowledge of Wade. Of special interest is an updated history of the Wade potteries, including a section on decorators and designers. Backstamps, reproductions and reissues also receive careful attention. Well indexed for easy reference.

This is a fairly useful book for Wade collectors with some nice colour plates. My interest lies in tableware, and there is little information out there on such items; this book goes some way to redress that. There are gaps, which I guess are hard to avoid when there were so many items produced by Wade. Also, I found the layout made the book difficult to use. When I found an item I wanted to know more about it was hard to find the information as the details appeared often amongst a myriad of figure numbers for the photos and numbers for the particular item. That aside there is plenty of information here which goes beyond the ubiquitous whimsies.

Some of the best wade books for collectors are by Ian Warner. I am happy to have this one in my collection.

Nice book and reference tool.

great book
