The International Association of Jim Beam Bottle &
Specialties Clubs started using Wade Ceramics to make items for our conventions
and district meetings after the closing of the Jim Beam Ceramic Company, Regal
The items that Wade has produced for us are limited issue and
used as part of our convention or district meeting packages. These items may be
available to collectors on the secondary market. Most items have our
International logo on them and are back stamped with Wade.
We would welcome any Wade collector not already in our
Association to join one of our local clubs in the United States. We also have
clubs in: Australia and Canada. You may get

or you may find a membership application on our membership page.
