F1 Standard - Wade Archive Sale

We recently made the trip to Stoke-on-Trent as Jenny had arranged for us to visit the factory for a much-anticipated catch up with Paul Farmer, OBE. Paul is the Managing director of Wade. We had a long chat with Paul about the recent F1 pieces that have appeared on the market. He told us that they had recently moved out of their storage unit as the lease had expired, and some of the F1 standard sample pieces and some other items had been left behind in error. However the remainder of the F1 standard sample collectables archive has now been released to the club, to offer to our collectors.


The F1 standard sample pieces are figurines and Whimsies that customers of Wade sign off prior to production commencing.  This is the piece that the decorators will have used as a standard to decorate each piece. Most of them are marked F1 and or signed by Jenny Wright - JW. We also have some pieces that have never made it to production and some colourway items.


There is only one of each of most of the Whimsies and figurines, so don’t miss out!


Below are the items that are now for sale. Each F1 sample will come with a special exclusive signed Wade Collectors Club certificate of authenticity.
