Default Motorcycle Horn?

I’ve never seen a horn like this one and it appears to be foot operated by the way the plunger is. Being foot operated makes me think it would be for a motorcycle. It’s a Sparks Withington “Sparton” horn. Anyone else ever seen one like this?

It looks like what's known in the UK as a klaxon. They were fitted to cars and lorries in earlier times.
