Very Rare WW1 British Bulldog Allied Flags Wall Machine
absolutely incredible machine - both in looks and play. 3 balls for your penny, and caught balls are returned for another go in the same game. Each time a ball is caught by the British Bulldog, an 'Allied Flag' is automatically hoisted up over the 'Enemy Flag' in one of the five windows in the playfield. The object is to catch 5 times in one game, thereby completely covering the enemy flags, and whereupon you are rewarded with a prize token for your efforts in saving the Empire from the enemy forces! - plus you can continue to win additional tokens if you still have any balls in play by catching them again! Perfect condition, fully working with key. We only know of one other example.
Size approx: 18 inches (45.7 cm) Wide  by 25 inches (63.5 cm) High
