Once more with the kettle this time from Windows


AIBDC : 0_2516 We are trying to find out who designed it and when it was made. More here: http://10most.org.uk/artefact/swan-electric-jug-kettle


Mainly metal, I know but important plastic pieces that make it work. Such a memory.... surely also for others... who can tell us about it?

Ian15.mdx has had a go at this. He writes: 'Regarding the Swan Kettle I wrote to Swan Products Ltd. but they now only own the brand name. I spoke to Claire Massey from their customer service and she told me that there is nothing left from the original Swan Electricals company. No archive no nothing. And no digital legacy. (There is a kettle museum but they do not have one). ' Can anyone prove him wrong?
