Coin-Op 1P Bryans Elevenses Countertop Arcade Game - 1955


Elevenses was produced by Bryan's Automatic Machine Works in 1955: by this time Bryan had perfected his standard Allwin mechanism, and the Elevenses was the first game to use it. The Elevenses went on to become the most popular Allwin of all time.

The long line of eleven winning cups made the game look very easy. Bryans trick was the use of spring steel deflectors above the cups. Instead of being fixed to the playing surface (as was usual with this type of game) these deflectors passed through the back flash and were fixed to a bar mounted some distance behind the back flash. Consequently they were considerably longer and more springy than they looked! A ball hitting one of these deflector pins would bounce a great distance, and usually ended up bouncing off all of the pins, straight into the 'lost' hole! This game had three different values of winning cups, and a replay feature.

This is a very rare find and in fully functioning condition. The game includes 62 original 1 penny coins and 1 metal ball. 

Dimensions: 23.5 x 17.5 x 4.5 inches. 


Good condition overall, Grade 2 under the Hoyles Vintage Grading System which you can find here.
