I would say the green one is some sort of Philips (Or Mullard / Fleetwood) only due to the knobs and the triangle dashed SW sale.

As for the brown one.. Not a clue!

Look behind the words "Short Wave" - it looks like the background for a Philips logo that has been inverted. Perhaps the back panel for the tuning dial has been removed at some stage and then refitted up-side-down.

The second image shows what just looks like an extension speaker.

Apart from the 6N8, can you make out any of the other valve designations, especially the first valve on the left?

Also, the tuning indicator you mention ought to provide a good clue. Can you let us know the designation number on that?
