|seller note||BRASS EAR TRUMPET HORN MARKED THORNTON
Unusual brass telescopic ear trumpet with makers badge which reads 'I.Thornton AD 1815 Turnham Green' which is in London. I have not been able to find out anything about this company. Length 12 inches. There are minor dents along the body but nothing detrimental. Original ear piece. The body does not fold down as with some telescopic ear trumpets but is fixed.
|comment||This is a must have item, the maker is undocumented - very good to be able to add a fine example like this - and a very fair price too.|
I asked the Thackeray for help with the brand but they have no relevant record.
