The Hawkins Tiffee 1500 and 1500A was basic model, without clock or light, and was introduced in December 1952. It was known as the Tea-V model.

The pictures supplied by website visitor Steve show his mint condition Tiffee, which has been in his family since new and has never had a plug fitted or been filled with water! It is still in its original box (although Steve admits that this is rather tatty), and it even has its instruction leaflet!

I have a 1954 catalogue which shows the Tiffee, listed as LGH 1500, price £3-19-6 (wholesale). It bears the delightful slogan: “Hawkins Tiffee – Tea in a Jiffy”

An advert in Woman’s Weekly in December 1953 lists the retail price as 79′-6, and another in December 1955 lists the retail price as £3-19-6.
