A teasmade is an appliance which is usually kept by the bedside, to wake you up in the morning with a hot cup of tea. It combines the functions of an alarm clock and a tea maker. The first known teasmade was invented by Charles Maynard Walker in 1891. The information on this website is currently being fully revised and improved in preparation for the publication of a book.
The website is run by two experienced teasmade collectors: Sheridan Parsons, a genealogist and house historian, and Doug Fennell, our expert on technical matters and Goblin production. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everybody who has emailed information and photographs for the website and who will do so in the future. Without your help we would never have achieved so much.
The website is independent and not connected with any manufacturer, retailer or repairer, although from time to time we may publish information supplied by them. The word teasmade is a genericised trademark, currently used for teasmades manufactured under the Swan Products brand.
