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 word teasmade is a genericised trademark, currently used for teasmades manufactured under the Swan Products brand.
This website was originally launched as www.teasmade.com in 2000 and was run by experienced teasmade collector, genealogist and local historian Sheridan Parsons, with the help of Doug Fennell, expert on technical matters and Goblin production.
There are now only three pages on this website! All the old content is being fully revised in preparation for the publication of a book. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everybody who has emailed information and photographs for the website in the past. Without your help we would never have achieved so much.
The website is, and always has been, independent and not connected with any manufacturer, retailer or repairer, although from time to time we have published information supplied by them.
