Some time between 1954 and 1959, Pifco took over and rebranded Teesmade Engineering’s Teeboy Deluxe as the Tea-o-matic 1049. The Pifco 1049 has a similar base, kettle and teapot to the Teeboy, but a very different and stylish clock face.
Under some Pifco examples you will see labels giving the name Teeboy Engineering for servicing, i.e. Service Tea-O-Matic, Teeboy Engineering Co Ltd. PIFCO made in England. The use of Teeboy Engineering, rather than Teesmade Engineering, indicates a post 1965 model.
