In the early part of the 20th century our 'Swan' brand name was registered by Bulpitt & Sons Ltd, a brass founders established in Camden Street, Birmingham, England. The brand was primarily used for domestic ranges of polished aluminium products like frying pans, kettles tea sets and jelly moulds.
From their first pioneering breakthrough - an electric element that could be immersed in water - they created a whole range of products based around it; including tea urns, kettles & steamers. Later, the company also developed and patented a 'safety cut-out' for kettles.
The Swan brand continued it's success throughout the next few decades and became synonymous with solid British manufacturing. It was said there was a Swan-branded product in virtually every home.
