Pilling Conversation Tube
There are two identical conversation tubes in the museum.
They are both 45 inches in length with bell openings of 2 inches. The
bells are made of black painted wood and the ear pieces are of hard
rubber. The tubes are a metal spiral covered with a woven fabric with a
black glossy plastic-like surface.
One of the ear pieces is marked "Pilling" and the other "Germany."
They were possibly sold by George P. Pilling & Son in the U.S.A.
These conversation tubes date from 1899.
