The case and top flash definitely look BMCo.
In Paul Braithwaites book there is a Bagatelle listed for BM Co. 1933.

Yes, it's typical of a number of the tall coin-return drop case games made by the British Manufacturing Company of London in the early 1930s. They featured oversized marquees with a variety of different playfield designs, but were almost identical mechanically. Well known examples are Draughts and Butterfly. See also Moving Stars and Pin Royal in the Museum. Nice find. !!THUMBSX2!!

I wonder if the BMCo Bagatelle machine was a precursor of this BMCo playfield:
