Tea maker by Albert E Richardson 1904

Probably the first commercially produced automatic tea making machine was a fantastic device built by Albert E Richardson,a clockmaker from Ashton-under-Lyne, Lancashire. This teamaker relied upon a tipping kettle.

This example, manufactured about 1904, was presented to the Museum by L. Mawer of Kingston Upon Thames in 1961.
