Looking into it a bit more, I do believe the roller jib furling is actually original equipment. Roller furling was developed in the very early 1900s and would be a very suitable installation on a cruising yacht with smallish jibs.
Nancy Blackett's system has a brass winding handle which sounds original to me.
