I first gave my mother the sugar and cream jug in the Mourne series when it first became available in New Zealand. We have tried to collect all the 16 pieces of the series over the years but the salt and pepper pieces have eluded us and we have the preserve pot without a lid. I would love to be able to complete the set for my mother as we have all the other pieces that we have purchased on ebay, trademe and in antique shops around NZ. My husband and I will be travelling to Ireland in July 2008 and I would be pleased to catch up with anyone who has a surplus of these items that I could purchase. We consider the Mourne series to be the most beautiful of the Irish Wade.

Jennifer dear,
I would be delighted to hear from you!
A great many years have gone by; a lot has happened, but I still think of all of you. Is your Mama still alive? I have tried to do Internet searches in an effort to locate you, but, of course, I didnīt know your married name!
My e-mail address is: akvinby7@hotmail.co.uk
I am now living in Eastbourne, Sussex - after nearly four years away from the U.K.
I contributed a number of digital photos but I donīt know if they arrived too late to be included in the Irish Wade Book.
I too have bought a few Jim Borsey pieces in later years: one in a charity shop in Brighton; one in an antiques market in Lewes; one in a house clearance shop in Eastbourne (only about three weeks ago!) - this last piece is a "Shamrock" sugar bowl, which was only priced at Ģ5!
Regards and my very best wishes to all of you,
Anna Victorin Borsey

Had the pleasure of visiting Wade shop, in 1990, while staying with cousins in Portadown. Shopped in Wades' retail store, on premises and bought several pieces. Also "picked" the dump site, while factory closed in July. Cleaned and brought several jugs, cups, candle holders back with me. So disappointed, when I returned in 2006, to learn Wades had closed. I am so lucky to have relatives and friends there giving me pieces to add to my collection.

Imagine my delight several months ago to meet Iris Carryer and listen to her recollections of her life in Northern Ireland after the war. I was especially touched by her humour as well as her loving thoughts and memories of the people who worked so hard at Wade Ireland.
As a child I collected the Lady and Tramp Hat Box Series of Whimsies - never in my wildest dreams did I think one day I would have the whole history as well as the friendship of the lady who brought them to us.

The opening night of the exhibition was a real treat - what a collection! We saw some things that we didn't know were produced by Wade and met many interesting people, both collectors and previous employees. Good to meet the Wade family too, sorry that we couldn't stay for the second day of events but we detoured from a holiday in Cork to be there on the opening night. Hope that there will be a permanent historic reminder of the Wade heritage in the Portadown area for future generations to see. Our thanks to all at Edenderry Historical Soc for their hard work and enthusiasm.

I was on e-bay and ran across a Wade tea pot. I was curious, because my maiden name is Wade. There were several Wade items on e-bay, so I am investigating. (LOLS)

Interesting website. I have a few pieces of Irish Wade which I enjoy. It's beautiful pottery. I just purchased a tea set on ebay and I'm looking forward to it's arrival.
My mom grew up in Belfast and the family moved to the US in 1924. My husband and I visited Ireland 1999 and 2005 but unfortunately didn't have an opportunity to visit the Wade factory at either that time. I thank you for the Website. Eileen
