seller note This is a very unusual conversation tube by Ardente of 309 Oxford Street, London. It measures 101cm long (39.75 inches) the nickel plated listening end has a pierced faux tortoiseshell inset, they are normally just a plug ear fit, but this one is a bit more sophisticated, where the flexible hose fits into the earpiece, there are traces of glue, so at sometime it has been glued back into the handle
