ITEM DESCRIPTION & DETAILS

"Minikins"

Donkey*

Series "C"

Minikins were introduced as a 'Low Cost" follow-up to the highly successful 1st Series of Whimses that were being sold at the time. They were sold for only 1/-d (one shilling) each and Wade had made over 1 million of them by the time Series "C" was put on the market in 1957.

They were produced during the period 1955‑1959 in 3 Sets (of 4 figurines each) referred to as "A" "B" and "C" with many different applied decorations & color combinations, which resulted in well over a 100 different variations that can be found.

They were designed & modeled by William Harper.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The figurine(s) in the pictures are the ones on offer in this listing & are sold individually.

If you wish to select your Minikin(s) you can simply use the follow system to identify the one(s) you would like, if you do not make a selection request (message) along with your PayPal payment.

I will personally select a "Minikin" for you from the selection on offer in this listing:

- Each  listing will show 1 Master picture, followed by 2 pictures each (1 Front - 1 Back) of the figurines offered for sale in the listing.

- The sequence of the listing pictures is from L to R or #1, #2, ... #5 etc.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As with every Wade "Minikins" figurine each one is slightly different & every one is unique.

Also, due to the "mass produced" nature of this series imperfections are part of the equation when collecting Minikins.

(let the pictures & listing description be your guide, or feel free to ask a question)

All have nice overall glaze coverage & good details. There are NO nicks, chips - UNLESS STATED above.

Note: Roughness around the bases & edges of these figurines is normal and part of the manufacturing process.

All my Wades are hand washed and very carefully examined & packed so they reach you in the stated condition:

★FM★ = Factory Mint or (Original as made by WADE) condition.

This means that NO - Restorations, Repairs, Retouches or RE-COLORING has been done to these items.

Made in England by Wade
