Antique Oxidized Brass Car Horn

Like something straight out of Dr. Seuss, this fantastical whimsical wonderful car horn is as cool as they come.

This would look perfect in a den or on a mantle, as the perfect conversational starter.

From the days Studebakers, Packards and the Ford Model T, this horn is the classic curled "bugle" style and features a great big leather bulb.

The horn is made of nicely oxidized brass and curves to make a full circle. There is a sturdy brass component on one side where it would have been mounted to the exterior of a car.

As you can see, there is a large stamped hallmark near the bell end that reads "AEW".

We really like the bulb because it has a great striped decoration. Over the years, the leather has become so dry that it is no longer "squeezable".

There is also a permanent dent on the underside. Finally, there is a lightly embossed mark on the end of the bulb that reads "14" within a circle.

There are solder marks around most the joints as well as some small areas of white residue where a previous owner tried to polish the horn.

Despite these minor condition issues, the horn remains in expected antique condition.

It's such a warm color and fun and interesting shape that it would look great in literally any antique collection and a fabulous decor item.

Measurements: Length: 18 ½" Width: 8 ¾" Bulb measures 6" long, 3 ¾" wide and 3 ½" deep Brass mounting protrudes 1 ½" from horn Weight: 1 lb., 4 oz.
