Default Connector for vintage Russell Hobbs percolator

I am trying to source the female connector for a 1970s Russell Hobbs percolator. It's rather smaller than a modern kettle lead and has round pins, about the same size as the old 2 amp 3 pin socket. It's also very similar to the three-pin "Mickey Mouse" connector used on some computer power supplies etc. but has slightly different pin spacing.

Can anyone suggest where such a thing might be obtained? And does it have any special name?

Thank you!

Is it by any chance the same as the kettle connector on a Goblin Teasmade?

I think that it might be specific to Russel Hobbs devices, my gran has/had a Russel Hobbs percolator with the exact same connector as shown in the above post.

They were also used on SONA and Swan percolators of the same vintage (late 60s to early 70s)
BS3283 introduced 1963, withdrawn some time before 1980.

I think they were fairly commonly used on percolators and not much else. They had "Nettle" embossed on the side which I assume was the manufacturer and do occasionally come up on Ebay
