Can anyone identify the brand and model of the tube tester shown in this photograph?

A friend of mine repairs tube radios and TVs and that's a shot of his grandfather doing the same. He'd like to eventually own the same tester.

Sounds like it's a Clough Brengle Navy OAE Tube Tester. Now I just need to source one at a reasonable cost.

Yep, that's a Clough Brengle "Unilyzer" Model 285B. A combination VTVM and tube tester...sort of tube tester anyway. Looks like grandpa is using the VTVM part of the device in the picture.

Here's one now -
