Ear Trumpets (Ear Horns)

Collapsible Celluloid Ear Trumpet (Ear Horn)

This is another example of a different style of "straight" ear trumpet.

It is in two sections and made of celluloid. Extended, it is 13" in length and collapses to 7".

Date and manufacturer are unknown, but with an ivory ear tip, it probably dates somewhere around 1880.
