The Rubes iHORN is made from a brass Rubes horn which was mounted on a Model T. This round perforated ball version is extremely, extremely, extremely sought after and collected. It is in fact the very first of its kind as an iHorn because they are most normally unaffordable for me to purchase at auction. It was made between 1910 and 1915. It is a centurian. The Rubes horn was connected to a bulb which was inside the cab of the Model T and was squeezed to emit the horn noise.
The Rubes iHorn is part of the industrial revolution and early Americana. It is historic in the manner in which it contributed to the automotive experience. For the automotive connoisseur, this is an over the top must have.
