Jennings Governor TIC TAC TOE top glasses

Postby coppinpr » Wed Nov 07, 2018 2:03 pm

I just finished this Jennings top glass art for someone and it made me wonder if anyone had heard of the company who did the UK conversion,"Tic-Tac-Toe Ltd."

Tic Tac Toe Ltd was a company based in Leeds I think owned by a chap Eddie..? I repaired a jukebox for his widow some years ago.

exactly like that one, I had to change the "TIC-TAC-TOE" on the one above to match the reel strips and the denominator from 5p to 1 shilling but the original top glass was exactly like yours when it came to me.

Topic merged - Site Admin.

Just finished this replacement glass for a collector in Austria. I've never seen the "trademark" number before and wondered if it referred to anything in particular. Originally a UK fitted glass, I assume by the denominator. Other than the trademark, it's just the standard glass. Just wondered if anyone has seen it before or knows if it's trackable. !PUZZLED!

There was a Governor sold at auction last year that had the trademark registered text on the top glass.

Interesting, not the same machine, but the same glass design for sure, so there were a few about. !THUMBS!

There were a few at the Elephant as well. Maybe they are original Jennings. !PUZZLED! So many of these machines have had their original awards replaced either in recent times by collectors or by revamp companies years ago. Just a theory, not fact.

I've always thought that this top-glass was a Jennings factory fitment for the Export (GB) models. There's a distinctly 'foreign' feel to that way of writing 'sixpence'.
