Great period pics of the GF there Craig. thank you. :thumbup:

The mixer in the bottom pic. is clearly a Winget, but it's getting to me that I can't identify the mixer in the top pic.

Other mixer is a dead ringer for the early Matchbox/Moko one, no make given though by Matchbox , my guess is Barford.
