This is a classic ear trumpet which was used to enhance sounds for those with hearing impairment. The specific ear piece was held at the opening to the outer ear and sound was reflected and enhanced within the curves of the trumpet. This example is of silvered metal and has its original earpiece and decorative grille. The condition is good for age with some loss of the silver finish and some tarnish but this is quite appropriate for age. This would be an interesting addition to add to a collection of medical instruments or aids and would be quite a good talking point! Maximum length 7.5 ins (19cm), maximum diameter 3.75 ins (9.5cm). Weight 160 grams.
