Hello fellow Sambanistas. I got this horn ring a few months ago and not sure who made it or what itís off of. The split bus emblem will give an idea of the size. Any insight is greatly appreciated 🤙🏼

Not VW. I want to say that based off the anchor, it may have come off a vintage boat steering wheel.

The horn ring is for a 1955-67 VW Type II. Not sure of the manufacturer.

See those two location tabs on the underside of the hub? That fits into a corresponding tab on the Bus steering wheel hub.

The horn button was original used by DKW. Made by Petri.
