seller note An Antique Brass & Metal? Hard of Hearing Ear Trumpet c1880/1900
This antique hard of hearing ear trumpet i think dates from around 1880 and 1900, the ear trumpet is made in sections of metal which i think is tin or other thin metal that is made in sections and has nice patina with age, the ear piece itself is made of brass with a seam beneath, the trumpet measures 12 inches long , there is some light rust to the surface of the metal but nothing major as seen in the photos and some slight denting to the brass ear piece but a good example of the period
comment A bit rustic but certainly fits the part
shape flare
boxed no
