|seller note||An Unusual 19th Century Brass Hard of Hearing Ear Trumpet.
This unusual object i am told is an antique hard of hearing ear trumpet dating to the mid 19th century , the ear trumpet is made of brass has been hand made and has a seam running down the stem and a castle jointed seam underneath as shown in the photos, the stem is hollow and has a bobble on the end for comfort of fitting to the ear , the ear trumpet is tin lined as is the bobble, the ear trumpet measures 16 inches long with the bowl measuring 4.25 inches diameter , there are a few minor dents and tarnish marks with age and use but a nice interesting medical item from the past
