Could be anything then!!
That’s why I said Cartridge or Re-wireable.
 
As @bill01803 said, generally they are porcelain fuses with asbestos wrapped around the fuse wire and/or an asbestos flash pad at the rear of the cut-out. This applies to both hinged and unhinged. I may have a photo of one which I’ll upload at some point.
