This porcelain figurine of St. Sebastian's Church is simply fabulous! It was produced in 1980 by Wade Ceramics Ltd. and comes from Set 1 of the Whimsey on Why village series.
The design includes 6 beautiful stained glass windows, a crenellated bell tower, and arched double doors. This Wade figurine was modeled after the old grey stone churches so prevalent throughout the UK. "Wade England" is mold-marked on the underside of the figurine. St. Sebastian's Church measures 1 1/8 by 2 15/16 inches and stands 2 1/8 inches at its highest point. This figurine is in excellent shape with no chips or flea bites. This little beauty evokes both a sense of history and an aura of reverence. It is easy to understand why St. Sebastian's Church remains such a favorite of the Whimsey on Why series.
Wade Ceramics Ltd., established in 1810, is known world wide for its production of high quality porcelain. Some of its most charming and unique designs were the houses of the imaginary English village of Whimsey on the Why. The exquisite details which appear on these Wade houses were achieved by fired-on enamel transfers. Five sets of buildings were issued between 1980 and 1987 and were not reproduced after that time.
Please Note: Because the Wade Whimsey on the Why figurines are, in part, hand-wrought, there are occasional slight variations from house to house.
