1908 Sears Catalog ad: "High Class" Bicycle and motor Cycle Horn

. Monday, October 21, 2013

Bicycle and Motor Cycle Horn. This is a high class horn of the bugle type. Gives a deep melodious alarm and can be heard at an extreme distance. made of finest spun brass, 7 1/2 inches total length, 2 1/2 inches diameter at mouth, beautifully plated, sure grip, India rubber bulb. No. 19K2131 New imported horn. Price (postage extra 12 cents) 86 cents.
It makes me giggle a little to see this horn -- which looks like a clown's horn to me -- described as "high class." I'm sure it sounds great though, with its "deep melodious alarm."
