    The pic is not all that clear, but during the late '80s and early '90s there were Marshall labeled Teslas that had a brown base. A clearer pic of the entire bottle would help.

    Swarty is probably right. Seeing the whole thing (so you can see the internal construction, the bottle, pins) is more helpful than a clear shot of the logo when doing a tube ID, fwiw. What you can see in the pic, plus if it has those crappy pins should give it away (as a Tesla).

    If they were original they'd be Mullards. Often the labeling will be gone. Look real close at the glass by the base, if they have e2f, e3f ar e4f they are Mullards.
