Collection: Irish Wade Porcelain

Irish Wade Porcelain, known for its delicate touch and shamrock charm, boasts a rich history intertwined with the established Wade Ceramics of England.

Their story begins in 1946, just after World War II. Wade Ceramics, seeking to expand, set up a factory in Portadown, Northern Ireland, initially named Wade (Ulster) Ltd. This venture proved successful, and by 1950, it transitioned to producing fine porcelain giftware.

Headed by Major H. Straker Carryer, the Irish factory had a unique family connection. His wife, Iris Carryer, daughter of Sir George Wade (founder of Wade Whimsies), became the Art Director, shaping the artistic direction of Irish Wade Porcelain.
