This adorable little palomino colt is one of the First Edition whimsie figurines made by Wade in England between 1956 and 1959. My parents gave it to me when I was a child - it is a "one owner" piece.
The little foal is cute, eating grass with its tail in the air. On one side of the base, the name WADE appears.
This little horse is approximately 1.5 inches tall, and has no chips, cracks, flakes, crazing or other damage. There are some brown specks here and there in the glaze, mostly underneath. See our pictures, please!
This would be a fantastic find for a serious Wade collector or anyone who enjoys horse figurines.
We confirmed the production date on this, and noticed the boxes at the time were printed Whimsies -- or Whimsie, with an IE and not a Y. Very British!
