The tube on the right has a gold sticker that reads
Western Quality Tubes.
Any idea of the manufacturer?

One has a sticker that says Rytone, amplifier Detector. The other one has a
gold sticker that says Western Quality Tubes, brown base. I presume they are UX 201A's ?

That would be my guess too. Those tended to be the only ones that were fully silvered inside. The earlier 201s (no A) were pretty bright and if you had them in a breadboard set they’d light up the room. I think the silver was to cut down on that when these were used as replacements in such sets. Most later radios were in boxes so it wasn’t as needed for them.
