Looks like mine. These pop up from time to time. English made, low quality, not worth much.

As Doug said, Windsors were English-made instruments. I have handled one or two and attempted to set them up for their owners, but generally they were poor specimens and all seem to have been in the lofts of their owners for a long time with consequent detrimental effects on them. The tuners in particular were very worn and not really able to hold their tuning. Known as banjo/mandolins and I have heard of banjoleles (banjo/uke hybrid?) as well.
