Ringing in the New Year: Vintage Noisemakers

We are excited to be back from our short break and ready for this new year. We are so grateful to everyone who has followed our blog over the last year. It’s fun to be able to share our finds with our readers. Today I’m sharing my collection of vintage New Year’s Eve noisemakers.

Horn  They all work, I tested them myself! It includes three tin lithograph horns and three heavy cardboard horns. The tin horns are all clearly marked with maker names.


The two horns with the white mouthpieces are made by the U.S. Metal Toy Mfg. Co. The colors are still so bright!


The third tin horn is by Kirchhof toy company. It is also marked made in U.S.A.

Horn 6

These next two horns are made of heavy cardboard with wooden mouthpieces. They do have a metal piece inside of them to produce the sound. They are much louder then they look!


This Dandy Horn is by far my favorite. It’s very patriotic in style with its red, white and blue stripes. It has a patented date of 1921. It is also marked “Made in Boston, U.S.A., M.B. Co.” I’m guessing this to be the Milton Bradley Co.

Horn Happy New Year and we hope you join us for another year of exciting finds! I can’t wait to see what this year brings.
