What is best, in your experience, for stabilizing this finish flaking off of a Clarodyne horn? Thanks.

To chemically stabilize it, nothing. There's nothing you can do. To help slow down the flaking process, gently handle it or don't handle it at all. One way to halt the flaking process is to seal the finish in a clear coating of something like varnish but that is a very harsh step to take and you may destroy the speaker's original look.

Keep in mind none of those horn speakers were ever designed to last 90+ years. I'd say, for the most part, your speaker has weathered to decades fairly well.
