This Vintage Brass Leslie Tyfon 125 Horn is from the Leslie Tyfon Company, which primarily made its mark in the locomotive industry. However, our research unveiled an intriguing history: Leslie Tyfon Company supplied steam control equipment to military and merchant ships during both World War I and World War II.
It was placed atop a piece of wood to help with easier display. On the back of the horn, you’ll find the Leslie Tyfon Name, 125, Leslie Co., LYNDHURST, N. J. The lower base features some numbers: 1 26-74 T, although it’s worth noting that the Leslie Tyfon Company didn’t typically employ serial numbers; these could well be stock numbers. Additionally, you’ll notice the number 4930 on the upper part of the base.
This item is being sold on consignment for a private collector from Cleveland. Every item has been well-preserved due to the owner’s deep love of nautical history. You’ll find some very interesting pieces in this collection – items that might not be found anywhere on the Internet!
