Toddy, the maker's name is printed on the face. Someone blacked it out years ago but that has faded and seems like it would be legible in person or with a better photo. Last part of maker's name looks like ?????? CARSON - 159 Plane Street, ???eby Road, Hull.
Interesting to look at the Google map of 159 Plane St., Hull. It's a street of early 20th cent terraced houses, but number 159 is an alley way leading between the houses to a small group of (also early 20th cent looking) workshops. The original buildings that made this machine? Can't track the company though. If we had the first part of the name...perhaps!
The dial appears very similar to the Bolland Predicta fortune tellers. However, I'd say Oliver Whales - the elaborate coin entries (which at the rear also incorporate the coin acceptor mechanisms) are often found on Whales Kiss-O-Meter machines.
Thank you for everyone's reply. I first thought it looked like a Bryan's machine. The case looks like a Fruit Bowl or Rippler and the square edged coin entry/card dispenser reminds me of a Bryan's Clock. Sorry, but I do not have the machine in my possession for a closer look. If anyone is interested in purchasing please PM me and I can forward you on to the owner. Thanks Again!!
I think Jerry is close. The mechanism face is just like "Predicta" which is listed as having be made by George Barnes, 1924. If Bolland got the idea from him, Oliver Whales is listed as having been an agent for Bolland and the casing/coin entry does look suspiciously like Whales. Seems to me there was a lot of messin' going on in coin-op during the day.
