This is the only 1930's hollow giant baby panda I've ever come across and I've been collecting and dealing in WADE for over 30 years! Extremely rare and as close to perfect condition as you can get! I detect no nicks, chips, cracks, repairs or crazing! It is slip-cast (hollow) porcelain and is marked in hand-written black ink: BABY PAND...WADE MADE IN ENGLAND. It is approximately 1 5/8 inches high and was produced by George Wade & Son Ltd. in the 1930's and is not known to have been reproduced after WWII according to THE WORLD OF WADE FIGURINES AND MINIATURES book by Ian Warner and Mike Posgay. According to Pat Murray's book she says this panda along with the Wadeheath Pandy and Panda nursery ware sets and the waving giant panda bear was probably modelled after the arrival of Ming, a baby giant panda bought by the London Zoo and delivered on Christmas Eve 1938.
