The 844 was a replacement for the 834b. Production of the 844 began in Northern Ireland in August 1972. It had a new style of housing in beige with the clock face now printed on a polished aluminium fascia. The control was now achieved by a circular switch on a clear perspex cover. It continued to use the large brass clock motor, which had now been in continuous production since 1947.
Marketing materials describe the Goblin Teasmade 844:
The same, with its own matching teapot. Fits just about any bedside table, with a base only 10″ by 8.5″
‘The same’ refers to the 843: Chrome on copper kettle makes four cups in your own teapot. Clear clock and simple dial switch – useful when you’re sleepy! Magnolia with opal lampshade.
The 844 was later replaced by the 844b, which was then discontinued in 1975.
