Wade Heath B Jug
Wade ceramics were founded in 1810 and specialised in various ceramics but are perhaps most famous for their collection of Wade Whimsies which were collectable small figurines. The Whimsies started off as a small marketing strategy but took off and became a core range for the company.
Wade went through various stages of ownership and name changes. It operated as Wadeheath between 1927 and 1953. I think that this jug dates from the very end of that date range.
The jug has a pleasingly simple shape. There are some scuff marks to the glaze on the outside of the jug but there are no chips or cracks.
Diameter: 11cm (approx)
