Goblin Teasmade Badge 1950s

Goblin Teasmade Badge 1950s
In the mid 1950s, my father bought a Goblin Teasmade so that he and my mother could have tea in bed without getting up; he probably bought it out of a TA Summer Camp Bounty, my mother getting some new appliance every year this way. It eventually passed to me, and it was in use until about 1987 when my young son accidentally knocked it off a low table in the bedroom, rendering it unserviceable. This is all that remains of it.

The kettle boiled the water which was forced through a U tube into the teapot. I suppose you could then have used the water for coffee.

My parents had one, but I don't recall a badge. It would have been a later model - 60s, maybe. Dad used it every day, to give him the energy to get washed and dressed, go downstairs, and make more tea! He drank pints of the stuff.

This was the model on a tray with rounded light panels with corrugated plastic panels on each side, there was a chrome square kettle with ceramic square teapot. The badge was central on the base, under the clock. When it went off, if the boiling process and then steam and water hissing through the U tube hadn't woken you up, the very loud angry buzzing did! Still, a wonderful, very long lasting appliance; no built in obsolescence in those days!
