Bryan's Four Square Two penny Arcade Machine

A rare find, a Four Square display cabinet, with an "Elevensies" game inside. A black and red scumble covers the metal on the game casing,with polished and painted metal coin slots, these have been updated from old coins to new two pennies, coin holders on the corners, and bright primary colours covering the base. In 1955 this eye catching slot machine saved, the Bryans Amusement Machine Company, from going under. "Elevensies" became Bryans all time best selling game.

Opened by William Bryan,a former Rolls Royce apprentice, in 1928, "The Bryans Automatic Works" was the first of it's kind in Great Britain.The early thirties saw the production of popular games such as "the Clock", "Waterfall" and "the Trickler". By 1936 Bryans had created the All Square and the Multi Sided Crane games. The thirties were his most sucessful years, after World War Two, with economic difficulties, Bryan decided to hook up with Allwin's, his European counter part. They produced slots together for several years. Bryans carried on in ever decreasing circles until 2000, when it ceased trading altogether. The Bryan family now reside at Dreyton Manor, and have a dedicated museum on site.
