Parkers were a large manufacturer, I can't see them recycling Bryans machines. If you look at the chrome surround it is different, there is no aperture for the Elevens sign. Also have you noticed the clown graphic, looking a bit like a Pilwin?

These are not made by Olly Whales - I don't know who made them, but there are a few variations. I will attach a pic of an O.W. Fruit Polo.
