Someone in France has contacted my site asking for info on this Bryans four sided tower. It looks like it just came out of the factory. Is it for real? It's either been kept remarkably well or very well restored (which it would appear to me to be). If so, it would seem to be something quite special. Any thoughts? The other two machines are Elevenses.

Depends what you mean by special - I'd bet my house it wasn't produced by Bryans. Note that there appears to be a small piece of timber added to the case above the doors, which probably implies that the case has been adapted, rather than having been built specifically to house the Bryans doors. If so, it would be interesting to know what the case was originally, or what was housed in it.

That was my thinking too. The topglass mouldings are similar to those seen on Morris Shefras allwins, but I never saw a four-sided Shefras console. Whales made them, as did Ruffler & Walker. R&W also made a 6 sided version, which looks a close match in style.
