I have this horn. No manufacture label. Looks like a Klaxton but no bolts around middle section of horn. Anyone know what type and approx year? Thanks.

There were dozens of hand klaxon type horns made by many manufacturers. Yours has no brass trim so it is no earlier than 1920's and probably no later than 1930 when they became less popular.

I figured it was mid to late 20's (I have a 1925 so that's perfect) Any idea of Manufacture of this Horn?

I have a Stewart Warning Signal horn like the one in the picture on the end of your box. Your horn is not a Stewart warning signal horn. A Stewart warning signal looks like this:

Better keep looking for the mfg. :-)

Your horn isn't a Stewart, the give away is the bracket mount. Your's has a very unique mount.

The Stewart uses a two piece long bracket with simple release nut on the upper bracket to the horn. The long base remained on the car's arm rest. That way you could remove the Stewart horn easy if you parked in areas with horn thieves :-)



Some of the many different makes of 'hand horns'
