seller note An Unusual English Regency Enameled Metal Ear Trumpet, circa 1820
10-1/2 inches long (26.7 cm)
The hearing aid comprised of seven trumpet heads joining in a hive configuration and leading to the hearing cone.
Small missing flakes of enamel to the edges of the horns, darkening of the patina through the hearing cone, otherwise with light surface wear indicative of age and use.
comment This is a great find, never seen anything like it - a must have item.The 7 horns are enamelled magnetic metal in beautiful faux tortoiseshell colours. Although expensive this is a phenomenal item.
