Your Kansas connection for the porcelain collectible line from Little Critterz

Sometime during 2001, it is believed that the Jolly Potter made a comeback to keep the employees at Wade up-to-date as to some things that were happening in the pottery. These issues were only meant for employees and were not circulated outside the factory like the initial Jolly Potter magazines. As with the original, Jolly Potter, there is also information about the employee's lives, who is new at Wade, who got married, etc.


A limited edition "Lil' Devil" was produced for the 2001 Trentham Garden's Wade show in a LE 100. The piece was a hit and quickly sold out. There were 99 available for sale with 1 being donated to the "This is Collecting" auction to benefit the September 11th tragedy.

The show had 33 dealers and the free entrance piece was a pearl duck whimsie.
