Celluloid Auricles 3

This is the smallest of the auricles in the museum. They appear to be from about 1920. These auricles are unmarked as to maker, but are similar to those sold by F. C. Rein.

They are made of a maroon colored celluloid. The folded length is 3.25" and the overall tube length is about 6". While giving a boost to speech sounds, they are not as impressive as Celluloid Auricles 1 and 2.

In comparing the auricles in the museum, I find that the tube length of the device is significant in the results produced—the longer the tube, the better the results.
