Here are 12 porcelain figurines made by the George Wade & Son of England. Beginning in 1983, as a marketing tool for Red Rose Tea, these little figurines were individually packed in the tea box. They were known as Whimsies. Each year a new series has been added to the Wade Whimsies. Figurines are in good condition with the cockatoo having an extra dab of porcelain on the base. Was probably caused during the firing. The taller figurines are approximately 1 1/2 inches tall. Sizes vary on the rest. Adorable figurines from George Wade of England.
