Presented is an item of seagoing gear, made
by the Clark Cooper Company of Palmyra, NJ. It is an air powered ship's signaling device and also has
been installed in light houses as a foghorn. Now it is available as an ideal addition to a serious collection
of unusual marine memorabilia or for use on a ship, boat or truck. Think about celebrating New Year's with the sound
of a BIG SHIP'S HORN.
The sound is said to be dramatic at 165 HZ and more decibels than other large horns
due to the large throat and nozzle area giving it the the characteristics of a vessel of large size. We
have read that the tone can be adjusted by adjusting the rear cover plate and increasing the air pressure. We have not
tested it, but all the parts are included so it should work when hooked to an air supply of sufficient pressure.
The entire horn and mounting stand is made of bronze so that the
54 1/2 pound weight makes it quite heavy. The horn extends 18 3/4 inches from 8 3/4 inch mouth
to the end, and on the stand it measures 24 1/2 inches high.
