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?

I suspect yours has been put in an oak cabinet to make it look more attractive - there were a lot of oak Parkers' cases around a few years ago that would fit this machine. I have added a c...
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.I put the wrong picture on, then tried to edit it, then got both! Still it gives you an idea of what Olly Whales should look like.
