1954 Smiths Teaboy

The Teaboy and the Teaboy Junior were manufactured by Teesmade Engineering at Lansbury Drive in around 1954. These were distributed through wholesalers. The advert shown in the gallery features in a 1954 wholesale catalogue, in which the price was £13.3.0.

The Teaboy had a Smiths Sectric Autocal clock/lamp in ivory finish. It was automatic, self starting, reset itself and needed no winding. The Teaboy had a chrome plated teapot and 2 pint capacity chrome kettle. The bodywork was aluminium with a ‘special washable finish’.

Doug writes that he found this advert for the Smiths Sectric Autocal clock in an edition of Country Life dated October 1950.
