HERE’S MORE PROOF Kent Art Ware was manufactured during the 1930s and before World War II. The standing draped female figure on the left, named Helga, was modelled by acclaimed British artist Jessie Van Hallen late in her 1920 to 1930 association with Wade ceramics of England. The draped figure is an example of more than seventy figures she created for Wade including a popular series of Art Deco ladies of which this is one.

Kent Art Ware’s virtual copy of Helga is on the right photographed by Roberto DeJesus. And if one copy deserves another, the Kent Art Ware Copy of Van Hallen’s Helga was in turn copied by an unknown maker of Japanese export ceramics as shown below.
