Wade Ceramic Gluggle Jug

Wade Ceramics is a market leader in the design and production of high quality earthenware and porcelain products. It is also a world leader in the design of porcelain flagons for the distilling industry.

Established in 1810, Wade Ceramics has continuously produced its products in Burslem, “the mother town” of the six towns (Burslem, Tunstall, Stoke, Fenton, Longton and Hanley) that joined to make Stoke on Trent the UK’s centre for ceramics.

Only in 1953, after Sir George Wade developed Whimsies, a small solid ceramic collectable animal series, did Wade become a household name in the UK and America and the company has been known ever since as the “Home of the Whimsie”.

Spanning three centuries, Wade has evolved to face the challenges of each decade.

Products which do not need to be “Made in England” are manufactured in the Far East, Eastern Europe and South America with strategic partners.

However, English porcelain is still manufactured in Burslem employing over three hundred highly skilled local people.
