This is a Stienhouse Equipment Authentic Double Manual Bellow Air Pump Fog Horn. This was a foot-operated air supply pump for either a Deep Sea Diving Helmet or a Firefighters Smoke Helmet. This originally was an air pump used to pump fresh air into the safety helmet using the double bellow system operation. The leather has a small cracked rubber patch shown in the photos.

To operate the bellows, the large aluminum foot pedal was pressed down, and air would be sent to the helmet using the tension of the large spring. On the top are two early plastic labels that explain how the wearer and attendant could communicate using a pull system and the maker’s information.

It reads:

CODE OF SIGNALS ON LIFELINE

FROM WEARER TO ATTENDANT
1 Pull. MORE AIR
2 Pulls. SLACK OFF LIFELINE
3 Pulls. HELP ME OUT IMMEDIATELY
FROM ATTENDANT TO WEARER
3 Pulls. COME OUT IMMEDIATELY

Around 1910, more advanced and efficient methods, which included oxygen tanks, etc., forced these antiquated machines out of the market. With this, companies began to add the large brass horn to the bellow pump and sold it as a portable Fog Horn for maritime sailors and fishermen to sound out to approaching ships, or to alert sailors of onboard dangers.

We tried the Authentic Double Bellow Manual Air Pump Fog Horn out and it does make noise!

This would be a great addition for a nautical collector!
