The black item is a steam whistle that most definitely would have been used on a riverboat. The bell seems too large to have been used on a riverboat, but could possibly been used on a large paddlewheel steamer, although I doubt it. This is a typical Chaplin Fulton bell and is a beautiful bell. It should be a prized addition to a collection.
