Original German WWII Bakelite Hand-Crank Air Raid Siren by Jurk - Dated 1940 - Handsirene

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. Made in approximately 1940, this is a World War II German hand-crank air raid siren (Handsirene). The chopper, stator, rear housing and handle are made of Bakelite, while the horn is steel, and the other components are aluminum. It constructed from a wonderful red bakelite and still functions by emitting a classic air raid siren screech when cranked.

The reverse is maker marked JURK in a circle, with a clear 1940 date below. The folding bakelite handle is marked Ziehen (Pull) next to an arrow. The bakelite parts are of the most desirable red/brown variety. This is a very rare hard to find piece offered in fully operational condition. The handle turns fairly easily, and the siren is quite loud. Definitely a great addition to any WWII collection!
