GOBLIN TEAS MADE MODEL D25B, 1960's

Machine for making tea automatically. On 17th December 1891 Samuel Rawbottom applied for a Patent for an electric tea making machine, this original device used a gas ring and alarm clock, on boiling, the water was forced through a tube into the kettle. The principal is still used today. The model above (D25B) originated from a patent application made by William H B Thornton in 1934 which switches the kettle off by a switch in the base released when the water falls below a certain level. The prototype formed the bases of the Goblin range of Teamaker D25 made in the 1950's from 1955 to 1960 it was replaced by the model D25B in 1960.
