Rein Celluloid Auricles

This pair of auricles were made by F. C. Rein of London, the major ear trumpet manufacturer during the 19th and early 20th century. These auricles were made in the 1910s.

The auricles are signed F. C. Rein, Patentees on the inside edge of each trumpet.

Each auricle is made in three pieces. In  this way they differ from the three other pairs in the museum which are all of one piece construction. You can clearly see the two joints (one on each side of the right angle elbow) in the larger view.
