Just a heads up that there is a Ruffler & Walker Grand National racer listed on the EH web site for any one that missed this one.

As Jimmy stated, the allwin is by The British Manufacturing Company (London) run by Charles Featherstone and dating from the 1930s, they also made a halfpenny version of this machine - see photo below, the company did not survive WWII.
Lovely looking machines.

Do British collectors generally like Kicker Catchers? They're like a more aggressive bajazzo ;)

Like the connotation that you can literally 'spend a penny' in the bathroom nick

Nice, but I think the Grand National would have looked better in the bathroom.

Nick - is that a 'Swinging Swinger' I see next to the Grand National?
