Ear Trumpets (Ear Horns)

Miss Greene Hearing Horn (Crimped)

This "Miss Greene Hearing Horn" is a bit unusual as the "pan" is crimped, unlike the others in this museum where the edge is smooth. It was likely made somewhere around 1900 - 1910.

This hearing horn or trumpet  in shown the open position the way it was used. It is made of tin and is painted black.

This is the largest of the Miss Greene Hearing Horns and measured 19˝" in length.  The bowl is 5˝" across.
